Chilwell and Mount confirmed to miss England game

The Football Association has this morning issued a statement updating on Ben Chilwell and Mason Mount’s participation at Euro 2020, following Monday afternoon’s news that they were isolating from the rest of the England squad.

Today’s statement reads:

‘We have been advised by Public Health England that Ben Chilwell and Mason Mount must isolate up to and including next Monday [28 June].

‘The pair were confirmed overnight as close contacts of Scotland’s Billy Gilmour after his positive test following last Friday’s match.

‘Chilwell and Mount will isolate and train individually in private areas at England’s training base St. George’s Park, with the squad returning there after tonight’s fixture against Czech Republic at Wembley.

‘We will continue to follow all Covid-19 protocols and the UEFA testing regime, while remaining in close contact with PHE.

‘The entire England squad and staff had lateral flow tests on Monday and all were again negative, as was the case with Sunday’s UEFA pre-match PCR tests.

‘Further tests will be carried out as and when appropriate.’

Billy Gilmour is also missing Scotland’s match against Croatia today as he is isolating for 10 days.
