Chelsea skipper Terry desperate to win something with England

Chelsea skipper John Terry admits winning something with England remains a major ambition.

It is eight years since Terry made his England debut against Serbia and Montenegro and he admits there is still much to achieve before he ends his career.

He said: "You are never going to feel fulfilled unless we win something.

"That is the ultimate aim. On a personal note, I feel I've got an awful lot of games left in me.

"I've got three years left on my Chelsea contract and am looking to stay at the very top for as long as possible.

"But to lead England into a tournament is a big incentive as well.

Terry believes the England players have benefited from a week's break after the conclusion of the domestic season but is adamant everyone is focused fully on claiming three points against the Swiss.

He said: "The break has been very important. It's been rest and recovery.

"But as a player, you go away knowing you've got this game, so I was training twice a day, like many of the lads were from having spoken to them.

"You don't switch off as a player. You do a bit in the morning, a bit in the gym in the evening, and making sure you are ready to go again for this big game."
