Man City keeper Hart: Chelsea's Terry flying in training

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart says Chelsea skipper John Terry will be ready for England's Euros opener against France.

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart says Chelsea skipper John Terry will be ready for England's Euros opener against France.

Terry came through a closed-doors training session, England's first since they landed in Poland yesterday evening.

"He was fine - flying round like he does," said the goalkeeper. "He doesn't seem to be holding back."

Terry's importance to Hodgson can hardly be understated given the grief that has had to be endured since his selection.

And, even though Gary Cahill's absence with a fractured jaw means Terry will have to swap from his favoured left-sided station to accommodate Joleon Lescott, Hart feels the transition will be a smooth one.

"It worked on Saturday straightaway," said Hart, of the defensive partnership that needed to be put into place following Cahill's exit during the opening stages of Saturday's win over Belgium.

"Obviously, JT prefers to play that left-hand side.

"But I'm pretty sure he's played on that right-hand side before and done brilliantly."
