Steven Gerrard, not John Terry, is the most popular choice of England captain, according to a poll of young footy fans.
The poll of 1,372 young visitors to MOTDMag.com found the Liverpool talisman polled more than double the votes of John Terry when fans were asked who the next England captain should be.
52% of those who voted said they wanted to see Gerrard take the armband, with just 21.5% plumping for Terry.
There was a further blow for Rio Ferdinand, following Capello’s decision to hand the captaincy to Terry as only 15.38% wanted to see him as skipper.
Wayne Rooney received just 11.22% of votes.
John Terry has been reinstated as England captain after being stripped of the armband over twelve months ago.
The Chelsea skipper will lead England in their Euro 2012 qualifier against Wales at the weekend.
