Chelsea defender Gary Cahill misses England training through injury

Gary Cahill was absent from England’s first training session ahead of the Euro 2016 finals in France.

Without those involved in the Europa League and FA Cup finals, Roy Hodgson was able to call on 17 of his 26 players at St George’s Park on Wednesday.

Chelsea centre-back Cahill was the only absentee from those available for the afternoon session due to a knock picked up in the 1-1 season finale at home to Leicester City.

The severity of the knock was unclear ahead of the Three Lions’ first preparation friendly against Turkey at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Cahill is one of only three centre backs called upon by Hodgson. John Stones and Chris Smalling are the other options in the heart of the defence.
