Chelsea skipper Terry: Leading England to Euros dream come true

Chelsea's England captain John Terry admits he's full of pride after leading his nation to Euros qualification.

Terry was stripped of the armband before last year's World Cup - only to win it back in March. And the Chelsea man revealed his pride at getting a second bite of the cherry.

He said: "That's been and gone, all forgotten about and I'm looking forward to leading England into a major tournament.

"It's a dream come true."

England only needed a point to qualify for the finals - and looked nailed on when Ashley Young and Darrent Bent fired the Three Lions into a two-goal lead.

Incredibly, they nearly blew it. Wayne Rooney saw red for a mad kick at Montenegro star Miodrag Dzudovic and the hosts went on to grab a dramatic last-gasp leveller.

Yet Terry added: "We're a little bit disappointed - after being 2-0 up - to go on and draw the game.

"We're happy so to be through, though."
