**Chelsea star insists he would have to been removed as captain

John Terry insists that he will have to be sacked as England captain as he will never relinquish the armband himself.

Terry, who was reappointed England skipper earlier this year after previously losing the role just before the World Cup in South Africa in 2010, has had his position called into doubt after allegations of racism against QPR's Anton Ferdinand.

But the Chelsea star insists that he has no intention of stepping down after he returned to the England side as they beat Sweden 1-0 at Wembley on Tuesday.

"I would never step down," he said.
"I always dreamed of this since I was a boy of four or five when I used to watch England games.

"It is something I have always dreamed of being and I have worked very hard to get here.

Confident
"I am very confident being England captain and I am very proud to be also.

"The England fans have always been great with me and the rest of the players. They are always right behind us and are very passionate, as are all the players.

"They expect the very best, we have a great set of fans and some great performances at the moment.

"I'm pleased we got two wins out of two games, especially after the Spain game.

"I've seen in the past we've had the highs and then dropped back a little bit.

"If we can continue this momentum for the next six months, hopefully things will be a lot better.

"We have always believed and we have shown over the last couple of games that we can compete with the very best - Spain, obviously being the best in the world."
