Terry insists England have the know-how and experience required to emerge from their dip and qualify for Euro 2012.
Terry said: "We still have to go to Montenegro which is looking like a crucial game at the moment.
"We're hoping others can do us a favour but, whatever happens from now until the end, it's still in our hands.
"We always seem to leave ourselves with an uphill task and always make it interesting!
"We always make it difficult for ourselves so we've certainly got the experience to deal with that.
"Ideally, we'd like to be in a better position than we are now but we can still qualify as top of the group."
