London - England defender Gary Cahill has been ruled out of the European Championship after fracturing his jaw in Saturday's final warm-up match against Belgium.

The central defender is the third England player in the last week to be ruled out of Euro 2012, following injuries to midfielders Frank Lampard and Gareth Barry.

Cahill was injured in the first half of England's 1-0 victory over Belgium at Wembley after being shoved into goalkeeper Joe Hart by Dries Mertens.

The Football Association says Cahill has two fractures of his jaw, one either side. Liverpool defender Martin Kelly will be called up in his place.

Meanwhile, John Terry has been given the all clear following fears of a hamstring injury after coming off Saturday.

England's Euro 2012 opener is against France on June 11.
