Ben Chilwell and Mason Mount will miss England’s next game against the Czech Republic on Tuesday evening, and could potentially miss the next knockout round.
Chilwell and Mount have had to isolate themselves as a result of an interaction with Chelsea teammate Billy Gilmour after they played Scotland in their second group game.
Reports suggest that the three Chelsea players spoke to one another post match in the stadium tunnel, which means that the pair may have been exposed to the coronavirus.

Gilmour has tested positive for coronavirus and also has to isolate, whereas his England colleagues are isolating and missing the next group game as a precaution.
