How fitting it was for John Terry, Captain of his country on the night and exactly seven days after missing the crucial penalty in the CL final, to score the first goal of the match against USA in Wembley. It was another flawless performance from him, as England manager Fabio Capello was very impressed with his performance. JT, scored from another David Beckham free kick on 38th minute. He said that he dedicated his goal to all Chelsea fans. To come back strongly from such a disappointment and put in a performance like that, I think that this is what makes him such a great character. A real leader on and off the pitch who always gives 100% and will throw his body in the line to help the team.
My heart broke for JT when he missed that crucial penalty against Man U, and unfortunately, I missed his comeback at this match. He is held in such great affection by CFC fans, having been loyal to the team since boyhood, and is deservedly the captain, both of Chelsea and England.
As an overseas Chelsea fan, you may be interested to know that I was introduced to the team via my partner who was born and raised in Chelsea. However, JT was born in the same town as me, Barking, and Frank Lampard is from my home town of Romford! Funny how things turn out sometimes, eh? 😉
