Chelsea captain John Terry was delighted for England over their World Cup qualification.

The 32-year-old, who has 78 caps, retired from international duty amid the Anton Ferdinand affair, but is keeping England centre-back Gary Cahill out of the Chelsea team at present.

Terry wrote in the Chelsea matchday programme: "Congratulations to all our players who qualified for the World Cup during the international break, especially to Roy and the England boys - I was more nervous watching than I ever was as a player.

"Well done to Lamps and Gaz (Frank Lampard and Cahill) and I thought Andros Townsend was a breath of fresh air.

"He had me on the edge of my seat every time he got the ball."
