England wait on Terry and Cahill injury news following win over Belgium


Bookmark and Share

By A Different League staff

Saturday 02 June 2012

England have two injury scares following their 1-0 friendly international victory over Belgium on Saturday.



John Terry was replaced in the 69th minute by Phil Jagielka, complaining of a slight hamstring injury, and the England medical staff will give Terry a scan to determine the seriousness as soon as possible.


In addition, Chelsea teammate Gary Cahill was forced off after just 19 minutes following a clash with ‘keeper Joe Hart, when Belgium striker Dries Mertens pushed the defender unnecessarily – Cahill came off with a chin injury, which a scan should determine is either bruising, or worse, a fracture.


Another central defender, Joleon Lescott, also had treatment for a cut to the head, but is unlikely to require further treatment.


England manager Roy Hodgson told reporters after the game: "We've got another few injury concerns. Gary Cahill is slightly more of a concern because it's a jaw injury. We hope that the scan doesn't show any fracture and that he can still play in the tournament. John Terry felt his hamstring, it wasn't major but we still need to scan it to be 100% sure."


England went on to win 1-0 thanks to a goal from Danny Welbeck in the first half, meaning Hodgson’s side leave for Poland/Ukraine on the back of two wins, following the midweek victory away to Norway.


England face France a week on Monday in their Group D Euro 2012 opener, and Hodgson will be anxiously awaiting news on the fitness of what may be his first choice defensive partnership.
