Chelsea captain Terry declares himself fit for England

Chelsea captain John Terry has declared himself fit for England's Euro 2008 qualifiers against Estonia and Russia.

Terry, who led Chelsea to victory over Valencia in the Champions League last night wearing a face mask to protect the cheekbone he fractured against Fulham five days earlier, said: "I am definitely going to be ready for England. I'm fit now and no excuses.

"It was okay playing in the mask. I got used to it in training and didn't have any problems at all. As long as I am wearing my mask in games it is going to full protect me. I just have to be careful."
