Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott insists there are no divisions in the England squad regarding the inclusion of John Terry.

The Chelsea centre-back was called up to Roy Hodgson’s Euro squad despite facing a court case in July for alleged racial abuse directed at QPR defender Anton Ferdinand.

But Lescott has made it clear that there is no tension within the playing group even though Ferdinand’s older brother, Manchester United’s Rio, was left out.

"Definitely not, there is no animosity in the squad," said Lescott.

"We are all here for the same reason and that is to do well for England."
