Terry hails Chelsea teammate Cahill over "immense" England block

Chelsea skipper John Terry praised Gary Cahill after England's win in Switzerland for their Euro2016 qualifier.

Terry praised Chelsea team-mate Cahill for his "immense" match-defining block to deny Josip Drmic in England 2-0 win over Switzerland.

"At 1-0, he's got himself back in there. That recovery speed is something people tend to overlook.

"I think Harty [Joe Hart] does well here initially, he delays him [Drmic], pushes him wide and Gaz comes back with a great block there.

"It's very important and an immense challenge. Over five yards, he's very quick. He does that for Chelsea an awful lot as well."
