Gary Cahill out of Euro 2012

Published June 3rd, 2012 - 06:29 GMT

Gary Cahill has been officially withdrawn from England's Euro 2012 squad after fracturing his jaw twice in Saturday's 1-0 win against Belgium.

The Chelsea defender was shoved into goalkeeper Joe Hart by Dries Mertens in the early stages of the game at Wembley.

Subject to agreement from UEFA's medical team, Liverpool defender Martin Kelly will be called into the squad to replace him.

Kelly trained with the team last week and was part of the group that travelled to Norway.

John Terry has been given the all clear and will be re-assessed on Tuesday when the team regroup.
