PSV attacker Mertens apologises to Chelsea's Cahill

PSV Eindhoven winger Dries Mertens has apologised to Chelsea defender Gary Cahill after he was ruled out of England's Euros squad.

Cahill suffered the injury when he was pushed into goalkeeper Joe Hart during the first half of Saturday's 1-0 win over Belgium at Wembley.

Mertens has at least expressed remorse for his part in the incident, issuing an apology on his Twitter page.

The PSV Eindhoven forward wrote: "I sincerely apologize for the harm I've cost to Cahill. When in the heat of the moment, you often don't think about the consequences.

"My thoughts go out to him and I hope he recovers well!"
