Kelly To Replace Cahill…but He Will Not Replace Him In Starting Xi

Gary Cahill has been withdrawn from the England squad to add to Roy Hodgson’s woes and his replacement, Martin Kelly, is 1/3 with William Hill to see no action during the Three Lions three group games (9/4 to make any kind of appearance vs France, Ukraine or Sweden). Cahill’s injury means that a maximum of 10 of Saturday’s XI vs Belgium will be able to start against France and Hills offer 7/1 that all ten of those take their places next week. The most likely, however, is eight of the players to start at 8/11 with nine at Even money.

“Cahill will be a big loss considering the fact that it looked like he was going to be starting alongside Terry and now it looks like Lescott will have to step up to the plate,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

How any of England’s starting XI vs Belgium will start against France: 25/1 seven or fewer; 8/11 eight; 1/1 nine; 7/1 ten

Martin Kelly to make any kind of appearance during England’s group stages: 9/4 yes; 1/3 no
