All eyes will be on Wembley tonight as England take on Egypt in our first friendly of the year in the build up to the World Cup. John Terry is set to start tonight and could face the England boo-boys in light of the events of recent weeks. I asked the question on here whether or not John should play tonight and have been encouraged by the reports and quotes coming out of the England camp.

Fabio Capello, Wayne Rooney and also Steven Gerrard have spoken to Press ahead of the game and its nice to see that the team atmosphere seems to remain unchanged under Capello. We all know JT had the Captain's armband taken away by Capello, but Wayne Rooney spoke the other day about JT and the fact that without the armband he will remain a leader.

Rooney said:
"John Terry is a great captain and a great leader, Whether he has the armband or not he will still be a great leader for us at the World Cup. I've been in the team when a few players have been booed at Wembley and it's not nice, it doesn't send the right message. I hope he gets a good reception!".

Steven Gerrard said:
"Alot has been said about whats gone on off the pitch and the players private lives, its time to move forward and get behind the team as I am told the World Cup is 100 days away and we are all as one moving forward".

Fabio Capello said:
"I have told him (JT) he has to be the player as if he is Captain. I spoke to the players and told them to recreate the spirit of the team and we have to try and really focus. I am really happy as I saw the same team that played in November. The fans have to support us. You have to understand that off the pitch some players are not so good but on the pitch its different!. We wear the England shirt its really important for us that they help us (the fans). We have to forget about everything that happened".

Inspiring words from the Manager and some key England players. No matter what there will always be a section of a 75,000 crowd that won't listen and will boo the players. Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard have already been the subject of the boo-boys and I have no doubt that a section of the crowd tonight will boo John Terry. Its about how he reacts that is the most important for me.

Without question he is the best English Centre Half we've got on his game with (in my opinion) Jaime Carragher coming in a close second (can never understand why he has never played alongside JT or ever been considered) so its important that he plays well and has the same mentality tonight as if he is Captain.

Let's hope he plays well and can ignore the barracking he will get from certain sections of the crowd.
