Man Utd's Ferdinand expected to get England nod

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand hopes to get the captaincy nod today from England boss Fabio Capello.

United centre-back Rio and Chelsea skipper John Terry are battling for the right to become Capello's leader.

Terry, 27, had the job under previous boss Steve McClaren but Capello will name his man this morning ahead of tomorrow's friendly against the Czech Republic at Wembley.

Ferdinand, 29, is favourite to get the job around the England camp - even among those pushing the Chelsea man's case.
