Roy Hodgson's injury woes have been eased with the news that John Terry is among the 23-man England squad set to fly out to Euro 2012 on Wednesday afternoon.

Terry, 31, aggravated a hamstring injury during England's 1-0 win over Belgium last Saturday, and the Football Association confirmed the issue would be reassessed on Tuesday ahead of their flight out to Poland.

A statement from the FA confirmed all 23 players trained on Wednesday before their journey to Krakow, where the Three Lions will be based for their Group D matches against France, Sweden and Ukraine.

Terry's availability is a boost for Hodgson, who has seen Gareth Barry, Frank Lampard and Gary Cahill all drop out through injury in the build up to the tournament.

Hodgson is, however, under fire for his decision to overlook experienced defender Rio Ferdinand following Cahill's absence, instead bringing in youngster Martin Kelly.
