LONDON(AP) The Football Association is preparing to make an announcement Friday on whether John Terry will remain as England captain while facing charges of racist abuse.
The issue has been brought to a head after a court decided Wednesday to delay Terry's trial until July - after the European Championship.
The Chelsea defender denies making racist comments to Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand during a a Premier League match in October.
The FA leadership has been considering whether Terry's position is tenable amid widespread calls for him to be stripped of the captaincy for a second time.
Terry lost the armband before the 2010 World Cup over allegations he had an affair with the former girlfriend of an England teammate.
