Lineker backing Terry to perform

Former England striker Gary Lineker believes John Terry can perform "remarkably well in trying circumstances" but says it is "going to be difficult" after the Chelsea captain was accused of a racially aggravated public order offence - a charge Terry denies.

Despite being "innocent until proven guilty", Lineker believes England manager Fabio Capello "will have to think long and hard" about Terry's role as captain of the national side should he be found guilty of the charge.
