Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott blasted Belgium attacker Dries Mertens for his role in Gary Cahill's injury.

The Chelsea defender is out of the Euros with a broken jaw.

Lescott reacted to the news of Cahill's fitness blow, condemning the challenge from Mertens that led to the injury.

Lescott wrote on Twitter: "Gutted to hear Gaz is ruled out. The challenge that caused it was more reckless and dangerous than most 2 footed tackles so why only yellow."
