EURO 2012 : Gary Cahill rulled out for England with fractured jaw

England defender Gary Cahill has been ruled out of Euro 2012 with a double fracture of his jaw.

The Chelsea centre-half suffered the injury when he collided with goalkeeper Joe Hart during the friendly win over Belgium on Saturday. Liverpool's Martin Kelly has been called up as his replacement, subject to Uefa's approval, with Rio Ferdinand still being overlooked by manager Roy Hodgson.

Better news for England is that defender John Terry's hamstring injury has been given the all-clear after a scan.

England had already lost goalkeeper John Ruddy (fractured finger) as well as midfielders Gareth Barry (abdomen) and Frank Lampard (thigh) from his original 23-man squad.
