Terry in the dark over Euro 2012 place

London: Chelsea defender John Terry says he is hopeful of representing England at Euro 2012, despite having to speak to newly-appointed boss Roy Hodgson.

Hodgson had vowed to contact both the Chelsea captain and former centre-back partner Rio Ferdinand before picking his 23-man squad on Wednesday.

This is in light of the former`s court trial in July after being charged with racially abusing Ferdinand`s younger brother Anton - although Terry denies the accusation.

Speaking at Chelsea`s Player of the Year awards, Terry said: "I`ve not had any call yet but I`m focusing on the league and Chelsea at the moment.
"Hopefully, I get the call and I`m in the squad - and that goes for many of us here. I`ll always be there for my country."

Terry looked out-of-sorts in the Blues` previous match against Liverpool where his side lost 4-1, being nutmegged by Luis Suarez in the build-up to the Reds` opener before slipping to allow Jordan Henderson in to score.

He willl also miss out on the Champions League final after being sent-off for an off-the-ball incident involving Barcelona`s Alexis Sanchez.
