Daily Mail - - Martin Samuel -

JOHN TERRY and Jer­main De­foe have both expressed fears over the ef­fects of al­ti­tude ahead of Eng­land’s World Cup opener against the USA on Satur­day. Terry said: ‘The al­ti­tude has been a bit of a sur­prise. Your mouth gets re­ally dry for a start. Our train­ing ground is at quite a high level any­way but this (Mon­day’s friendly game) was an­other 150 me­tres above sea level and we cer­tainly felt it.’ De­foe added: ‘I don’t know what ef­fect it will have on the team but I think it takes you a lit­tle bit longer to get your re­cov­ery.’
