Chelsea skipper Terry: England cannot match Spain

Chelsea skipper John Terry accepts England cannot match European champs Spain - yet.

Terry declared: "We all agree we're not on the same level as Spain.

"Look at Barcelona in the Champions League. They were unbelievable technically. But we can play as a side. The manager has encouraged us from day one to play from the back.

"This manager hates it when we play long ball. He screams at the lads, 'No long ball, no long ball'.

"We have the players to get the ball down and play. We're not on the level of Spain but we're not too far behind."
