It was said they would cease all preparations immediately but now UEFA have said that the match will take place as scheduled.

Scotland could now be set travel to Olomouc on Sunday, having played out a 1-1 draw in their Nations League opener with Israel on Friday night.

 

Czech Republic opened their account with a fine 3-1 win away to Slovakia but their preparations were disrupted as West Ham midfielder Tomas Soucek and RB Leipzig striker Patrik Schick were ordered self-isolate following contact with a member of backroom staff member who tested positive for COVID-19.

The Czech FA delayed the departure to their opponents by 24 hours as the entire squad was re-tested for the virus. Eventually, they made their way to Bratislava by road, splitting up into small groups for the 200-mile journey.
