Before selecting his captain, Capello himself said the he not only wanted a good leader and a good player to take the armband, but someone who was a role model to others in the game and England fans.
Terry's aggressive behaviour towards referees, in my opinion, doesn't make him the best role model available to Capello.
England coach Fabio Capello may cut a figure of stone-faced Italian solidity - but is showing a knack for springing surprises and his choice of John Terry as captain is another.
Gone are the days when teams and captains could be predicted with confidence, and as all the signs appeared to point to Rio Ferdinand gaining the armband on a permanent basis, Terry arrived stage left to keep his job.
I watched Ferdinand when he was preparing for England's friendly in France in March, and he did a passable impersonation of the captain-in-waiting with an almost statesman-like pre-match media briefing.
He has matured as a player and person, and his role in Manchester United winning the Premier League and the Champions League only added lustre to his reputation.
It would have been fascinating to see how this supreme footballer and heartbeat of Liverpool would have reacted to the responsibility, but Terry is Capello's pick after a series of public auditions.
If the FA is going to persist with it's respect towards referees campaign it has to lead from the front, and the selection of Terry as captain goes against that.
He will also be driven by his recent disappointments, not just Chelsea's defeat on penalties in Russia but also as the captain (albeit an injured one for vital games) who was one of those unable to see England safely through the qualifying campaign to Euro 2008.
England have a huge opportunity to ensure they do not repeat the mistakes of the Mc Claren era and reach South Africa in two years.
Terry on the other hand, had suffered from injuries at crucial times and was very much seen as Steve Mc Claren's man, an impression not helped by those awful sycophantic and awe-struck references to "JT" from the coach.
He was seen to be fighting a real battle to re-establish himself as captain, especially after being hit with heavy personal criticism for Chelsea's hounding of referee Mike Riley in the 4-4 draw at Spurs in March.

Since then he has suffered the biggest disappointment of his career, slipping and missing a penalty that would have given Chelsea the Champions League in Moscow in May.
