Mason Greenwood Sent Home From England Duty After Covid Breach


Mason Greenwood along with Phil Foden have both been sent home from England camp following a breach of the Covid 19 restrictions.


Reports are suggesting the teenage pair, who both made their debuts against Iceland on Saturday, invited some women back to the hotel after the last game.


If this is true, it will breach the “secure bubble” that the England squad has due to the ongoing pandemic.


Gareth Southgate spoke after the announcement of them both being sent home;


“Two of the boys have broken the Covid-19 guidelines, in terms of our secure bubble.


“We had to decide very quickly that they couldn’t have any interaction with the rest of the team and wouldn’t be able to train”.


Southgate also said “Obviously they have been naïve. They have dealt with it appropriately. I recognise their age but the whole world is dealing with this pandemic.


Both Manchester clubs are said to be very disappointed in their respective players and are looking at a club punishment for this international breach.
