Injured England defender Cahill out of Euro 2012

England defender Gary Cahill has been ruled out of the European

Championship after fracturing his jaw in Saturday’s final warmup

match against Belgium.

The central defender is the third England player in the last

week to be ruled out of Euro 2012, following injuries to

midfielders Frank Lampard and Gareth Barry.

Cahill was injured in the first half of England’s 1-0 victory

over Belgium at Wembley after being shoved into goalkeeper Joe Hart

by Dries Mertens.

The Football Association says Cahill has two fractures of his

jaw, one either side. Liverpool defender Martin Kelly will be

called up in his place.

Meanwhile, John Terry has been given the all clear following

fears of a hamstring injury after coming off Saturday.

England’s Euro 2012 opener is against France on June 11.
