Terry leading Chelsea to CWC - 6,000 miles away!

Chelsea skipper John Terry is leading the club to the Club World Cup - 6,000 miles away in London!

Blues boss Rafa Benitez revealed he has been in constant touch with the injured skipper ahead of today's showdown with Corinthians.

And Benitez said that Terry's message to the rest of the squad was a key part of his final preparations as the Blues seek to become only the second English club - after Manchester United in 1999 and 2008 - to beat the cream of South America.

Benitez said: "I was preparing the team talk and had messages, including some from John Terry.

"It was good to get them. He's been sending messages asking about how the team has been and that's very positive.

"He told us how well we were doing, how much he enjoyed watching the game on Thursday, and wished us all the best. I forgot to pass it on to the players yesterday but I will tell all the team before the game."
