Chelsea duo Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell have joined teammate and Scotland star Billy Gilmour in self-isolation following the Euro 2020 stalemate between England and Scotland.
The 0-0 draw at Wembley means a win over Croatia on Tuesday could seal Scotland’s place in the last 16 of the Euros. But Chelsea midfielder Gilmour has been ruled out after his Man of the Match display against England, contracting Covid-19, going into self-isolation as a consequence.
Chelsea teammates Mount and Chilwell join him after being deemed as close contacts and they will miss England’s final group match with Czech Republic, alongside an all but likely last 16 tie. No further Scotland players have been deemed as close contacts ahead of Tuesday’s vital encounter at Hampden Park.
An SFA statement reads: “The Scottish FA can confirm that a member of the Scotland National Team playing squad, Billy Gilmour, has tested positive for COVID-19. Having liaised with Public Health England since the positive test was recorded, Billy will now self-isolate for 10 days.”
