England’s two friendly dates in November will provide a great opportunity for the younger players in the squad according to captain John Terry.

The Three Lions meet Spain on November 12 and Sweden three days later and the Chelsea centre-half sees it as a great chance for Fabio Capello to expose some young players to two quality international teams.

“We've got a couple of friendlies, Spain next month, and there is a lot of preparation so I expect the management to try new things, new formations, and new players as well because the younger players have made a massive impact,” he told Chelsea’s official website.

“We've got a couple here, Studge [Daniel Sturridge] and Josh [McEachran] who can really push for places.

“We've seen the manager give chances to the likes of Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley as well, so it's refreshing for the youth of English football and the younger players coming through at the moment.”
