Ben Chilwell will miss England’s UEFA Nations League fixture with Belgium on Sunday after his arrival to the squad was delayed further with a non-Covid related illness.
Chilwell, along with Tammy Abraham and Jadon Sancho, was barred from entering the England camp with the rest of the squad on Monday, after the trio attended a birthday party in Abraham’s London flat last weekend. The surprise gathering had around 20 guests, and therefore breached the Government’s coronavirus rules.
England manager Gareth Southgate confirmed after the 3-0 friendly victory over Wales that the three players would be recalled depending on them passing a UEFA-mandated coronavirus test on Friday.
Abraham and Sancho have undergone the test but Chilwell is yet to join up with the squad as he recovers from a non-Covid related illness.
