England manager Gareth Southgate has said there is ‘quite a doubt’ about whether Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell will play against the Czech Republic on Tuesday. Both players are isolating after they had close interaction with Scotland player Billy Gimour, who has since tested positive for Covid-19.
Asked whether the players would be available for selection tomorrow, Soouthgate said: ‘We don’t know at the moment. There’s obviously got to be quite a doubt, but there’s still a lot of discussions and investigations going on behind the scenes. So they’re -isolating and we just have to find out over the next 12 hours or so.’
The whole England squad trained on Monday and Mount would be expected to start on Tuesday if available. Full-back Chilwell has not played in either match at the tournament. The two players are clubmates with Gilmour at Chelsea.
