Cahill injures jaw in friendly
England manager Roy Hodgson fears the worst after Gary Cahill injured his jaw during a friendly against Belgium on Saturday.
The defender had an x-ray on his jaw at Wembley Stadium after sustaining the injury in the first half of the Three Lions' Euro 2012 warm-up match, raising doubts over his participation in the tournament.
Cahill was replaced by Joleon Lescott after colliding heavily with team-mate Joe Hart following a push from Belgium's Dries Mertens in the 17th minute.
Cahill was substituted immediately and subsequently underwent an x-ray on his jaw to establish the severity of the injury.
Hodgson confirmed the news in the post-match press conference: "Cahill (is) having a CT scan as we speak … if he has fractured jaw, which is a distinct possibility, we(will) lose him for Poland."
England went on to win the match 1-0 courtesy of a first-half goal from Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck, meaning Hodgson has now won both of his first two games since taking the reins of the national side.
However, the injury to Cahill will concern the former Liverpool manager who has already lost John Ruddy, Gareth Barry and Frank Lampard from his original Euro 2012 squad due to injury.
