Egypt coach Shehata: I would axe Chelsea skipper Terry

Egypt coach Hassan Shehata says he would have dumped Chelsea defender John Terry from the England squad if he had been in Fabio Capello's shoes.

Shehata, who brings his team to Wembley for a ­friendly on Wednesday, has a policy of zero tolerance towards badly-behaved stars.

"We have different traditions and rarely face these kinds of problems," said Shehata. "But if it did happen within the team, it would be a serious and big problem and unacceptable, not only from me, but from the society as well.

"Both players [Terry and Ashley Cole] would be ­excluded and kicked out of the team - no matter who they are and how much the team needs them."
