Cahill injury woe for Hodgson
The Football Association have confirmed that Chelsea defender Gary Cahill will miss Euro 2012 with a double fracture of his jaw.
The former Bolton stopper suffered the injury early on in England's 1-0 friendly win against Belgium at Wembley on Saturday when he was was shoved into goalkeeper Joe Hart by Dries Mertens, who was booked for the offence.
Cahill subsequently had a scan on the injury on Sunday and the FA revealed that he has two fractures of his jaw, one either side. It means, like Chelsea team-mate Frank Lampard, he will be unable to travel to the tournament in Poalnd and Ukraine.
In response, England coach Roy Hodgson has called up Liverpool's Martin Kelly as a replacement in his defensive options.
There was a boost for the Three Lions as Cahill's Chelsea skipper John Terry has got the all-clear after a scan on a hamstring problem he picked up against Belgium. He will be reassessed on Tuesday, but is expected to be okay for the finals.
