Shilton wants England recall for Chelsea captain Terry

England legend Peter Shilton says Chelsea captain John Terry should be recalled to the Three Lions squad.

England legend Peter Shilton says Chelsea captain John Terry should be recalled to the Three Lions squad.

He believes that the current defence in Roy Hodgson's side have been making too many errors - mistakes they will not be able to afford in Group D against Uruguay, Italy and Costa Rica.

Shilton told the Daily Echo: ''Even if it is only a short-term measure we should bring John Terry back in just for the World Cup to give the squad a little bit of experience.

''I think at the back we have been making too many errors, Gary Cahill has made a few elementary errors, and we lack a bit of experience at the back.

''I know it's unlikely to happen as the FA would say it's a backward step, but sometimes for one tournament it is the right step for the team. People would learn from him and you always have to have experience and leaders in a squad and we are lacking that somewhat.''
