England defender Cahill set to be fit to face Switzerland

Comments
The Chelsea centre-back picked up an ankle injury in the 1-0 win over Norway, forcing him to sit out training on Friday, but is expected to shake off any concerns before Monday

Gary Cahill is expected to be fit for England's Euro 2016 qualifier with Switzerland despite missing training on Friday.

The Chelsea defender picked up an ankle injury on Wednesday as Roy Hodgson's men struggled to a 1-0 friendly win over Norway.

The 28-year-old was left out of Friday's session but should be available for selection as England aim to start their qualifying campaign on a high in Basle.
 


That news will come as a boost to the under-pressure Hodgson, who has already lost two of his squad to injuries.

West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster withdrew from the squad due to a thumb complaint, while Newcastle United midfielder Jack Colback missed out on the chance to win his first England cap because of a calf problem.

Monday's trip to Switzerland pits Hodgson against one of his former sides, one England have not lost to since a 2-1 defeat in 1981.
