England football coach Fabio Capello has criticised the English FA's decision to strip John Terry of the national team captaincy.

Terry was removed as captain ahead of his trial in July over alleged racial abuse of QPR's Anton Ferdinand, an allegation he denies.

Speaking on Italian state television, Mr Capello said he "absolutely" did not agree with the decision, saying it is punishing the Chelsea defender before he can be judged in court.
