England and Chelsea defender John Terry should be fit to play in Saturday’s FA Cup final against Portsmouth despite injuring his right foot in training.
Fears over Terry’s place in the World Cup were raised after he was taken to hospital on Wednesday.
But a scan revealed the Chelsea captain did not suffer a break.
“With such an important match coming up the right thing was to put a protective boot on and have a scan,” Terry said.
“The scan shows there’s no break. I aim to train on Thursday, if not Friday, and of course play in the final.”
England coach Fabio Capello will be relieved at the news about Terry’s fitness as a number of other important players, including skipper and fellow defender, Rio Ferdinand, have suffered with injuries recently.
