John Terry was confirmed on Thursday as the new skipper of the England football team.

The 25-year-old will succeed David Beckham, who stepped down as England captain after the World Cup.

Chelsea skipper Terry has won 29 caps since making his debut against Serbia and Montenegro on 3 June 2003.

Terry begins his reign as captain in Steve McClaren's first match in charge of the national team, a friendly against Greece on 16 August.

Beckham stepped down as England captain one day after his team was knocked out of the World Cup quarter-finals by Portugal.

The midfielder had been skipper for six years after being handed the armband by stand-in coach Peter Taylor in 2000.
