John Terry: Captain America?

The future of John Terry as England captain is up in the air following the news that has been released this week.

The revelations, that Terry failed to keep under wraps with a court order, are that the Chelsea defender may or may not have had an affair with someone who may or may not have still been going out with his friend and former team mate (or should that be former friend and team mate) Wayne Bridge, who is now at Manchester City.

There's plenty of discussion to be had as to whether or not someone capable of an extra-marital affair should represent the country as captain, and we'd love to hear what you think - leave us a comment below.

Should Capello axe his captain? Odds of 4/9 say that John Terry will lead England out in their first match in South Africa for the 2010 World Cup when they face the USA. Who would replace him?

It appears that punters fancy Wayne Rooney to be the next England skipper as he's been backed in from 16/1 to 10/1 second favourite behind Liverpool captain Steve Gerrard (5/2).  David Beckham or Rio Ferdinand can be backed at 16/1.

"Opinion seems to be firming up that Terry is quite likely to be replaced and punters steamed in to take our 16/1 for Rooney to succeed him for the first World Cup game with a string of bets of up to £50 a time in the shops and bets of up to £300 online," said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Terry is 8/13 to be England captain for their next friendly against Egypt with Hills who offer 6/5 that he will not be.
