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.


On the plus side Martin Kelly is a talented young defender with a bright future, on the minus side the Liverpool man is not a centre-back which leaves John Terry, Joleon Lescott, Phil Jagielka and Phil Jones as possible central defensive options for the finals.

It was a cowardly act that sees the Chelsea man miss the finals in Poland and Ukraine, Belgium attacker Dries Mertens deliberately pushing Cahill into Joe Hart which saw the PSV Eindhoven man booked. See below for video.
