England Players Axed From The Team For Breaching CO-VID 19 Rules
Tammy Abraham, Ben Chilwell and Jadon Sancho will miss England’s game against Wales on Thursday as the FA continue their investigation into Abraham’s surprise birthday party. The FA is continuing its investigation into the players’ attendance at a party on Saturday night, which broke the government’s coronavirus rules. Sportsfold.com understands that the trio have apologised but there are no plans for them to be included the list of players to undergo the compulsory coronavirus tests which will be done two days before their game against Wales. Abraham’s friends and family threw a surprise party to celebrate his 23rd birthday at his London flat, with Chilwell and Sancho also there. Around 20 people in total were inside the flat, in a clear breach of the national ‘rule of six’.
The FA told all three to stay away from St George’s Park on Monday, while the rest of the England players signed up and had their regular coronavirus test. England coach Gareth Southgate gave the squad specific warnings about breaching the rules after the embarrassing situation in Reykjavik four weeks ago, when Phil Foden and Mason Greenwood were sent home for leaving the eco-bubble to meet two Icelandic women.
