Chelsea captain Terry refuses to consider England failure

Chelsea captain John Terry cannot contemplate World Cup failure with England.

The disgraced ex-skipper says failure to qualify for the last 16 would even eclipse Chelsea's penalty shootout defeat to Manchester United in the 2008 Champions League final.

Terry, 29, said: "I am a passionate and emotional guy, so going out here would be the biggest disappointment of my career.

"I can accept losing but I couldn't accept the way we've played.

"Our World Cup's certainly not over. OK, we are not in the position we wanted to be but sod it, we've got one game where we can make or break our tournament.

"And there's no way I want to go home - I'm here to win it."
