John Terry and Anton Ferdinand met at Wembley as the Chelsea captain's Football Association disciplinary hearing over allegations he racially abused the QPR defender started on Monday.

Ferdinand (pictured) gave evidence to the independent panel at the hearing, with Terry in attendance to hear the case against him.

Central defender Terry, who dramatically announced his retirement from international soccer on Sunday, effectively accused the FA of forcing his hand after the governing body pressed on with charges that he racially abused Ferdinand in October.
