Terry is in doubt for the Germany match but Mancienne said it would be a great honour to quell the German forwards with somebody he idolises.
"The game has just come naturally to me, I used to play in midfield so when I went to the back I had a lot of confidence.
"John is captain of the full national side and is someone I look up to. He plays a big part in my belief that I can make it in the game because he made the breakthrough.
"He started out at Chelsea having to compete with Frank Leboeuf and Marcel Desailly who had won the World Cup with France and look where he is now."
