England must do it Chelsea style, says JT

CAPTAIN John Terry insists England will need to adopt Chelsea&rsquo;s physical approach if they are to secure their World Cup qualification on Wednesday night.<br /><br />Fabio Capello&rsquo;s England entertain Croatia at Wembley knowing victory will guarantee their place in South Africa next summer.<br /><br />The Croatians adopted an aggressive style in their last visit to Wembley back in November 2007 when a bruising 3-2 victory ensured England failed to qualify for the European Championships.<br /><br />And it was much the same in Zagreb last September when England got their revenge with a 4-1 victory.<br /><br />Now Terry has warned his men to expect another physical encounter with Croatia themselves fighting for their World Cup futures.<br /><br />&ldquo;From a personal point of view, the last game in Zagreb was very physical,&rdquo; Terry said. &ldquo;They set the tone of the game early on. That is what we need to do. I think for the first 15 minutes we need to be aggressive and match them. When the ball does get down and we start playing I think we&rsquo;ve seen we can match a lot of the teams in the world. But physically, as we do at Chelsea, you go out to win your battles early on. That&rsquo;s key; that can set the tone of the game.&rdquo;<br /><br />Terry has also heaped praise on in-form Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe, who is pushing for a place in Capello&rsquo;s starting line-up after netting his fifth goal in three international matches in the 2-1 friendly victory over Slovenia on Saturday.<br /><br />&ldquo;Defoe has looked very sharp early this season for Spurs and England,&rdquo; Terry added. &ldquo;He is probably pushing to be our number one or number two striker at the moment.<br /><br />&ldquo;There is always the chance for anyone to force their way in. Jermain wasn&rsquo;t involved a few months back. Now look at him.&rdquo;
