Gary Cahill is set to have a second scan on the jaw injury he suffered during England's 1-0 win over Belgium at Wembley on Saturday night.
England's injury crisis ahead of Euro 2012 deepened after Cahill was forced off after less than 20 minutes while fellow central defender John Terry also suffered a hamstring strain.
Cahill's hopes were boosted on Sunday morning after Football Association director of football development Sir Trevor Brooking hinted an initial scan had cleared him of major damage. He told BBC's Sportsweek programme: "Gary was certainly our initial main concern last night."
Brooking added: "He had a scan last night. At the moment the feedback is that we are hoping it is not cracked.
"It was his jaw following the collision and they were concerned that it was cracked and it might have put him out of it (Euro 2012).
"At the moment we're hoping it's not. I'm sure they'll have a second look but at present we're hoping that's okay.
"John Terry had a hamstring issue that will be scanned this morning. The medical staff are hopeful that it is not bad enough for him not to be able to stay in the squad."
