Terry Stripped, Who's Next For The England Captaincy?

After a week of waiting for Capello to return to England and with rumours flying around, it is official that John Terry has been stripped of the England captaincy.

World Cup betting bookmakers Victor Chandler have opened up latest odds on who is to captain England for their opening Group C game against the USA on the 12th June following on from Fabio Capello's statement:

"As a captain with the team, John Terry has displayed extremely positive behaviour. However, I have to take into account other considerations and what is best for all of the England squad.

"What is best for all of the England team has inspired my choice. John Terry was notified first.

"When I chose John Terry as captain, I also selected a vice-captain and also named a third choice. There is no reason to change this decision.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank The FA, particularly Lord David Triesman and Ian Watmore for allowing me to make this decision in my own time and in the best interest of the team."
