Tammy Abraham, Ben Chilwell and Jadon Sancho will miss England's friendly match against Wales on Thursday while they await the results of coronavirus tests after attending a party at the weekend.

LONDON: Tammy Abraham, Ben Chilwell and Jadon Sancho will miss England’s friendly match against Wales on Thursday while they await the results of coronavirus tests after attending a party at the weekend.

The three players’ arrivals at the England training base were delayed this week as the Football Association assessed if there was any risk to the squad as a result of the party held at Abraham’s house, which Chilwell and Sancho also attended.

England manager Gareth Southgate said the players will not be available against Wales but couldn’t say whether they may return to play the Nations League match against Belgium on Sunday.
