LONDON (Reuters) - Striker Marcus Rashford defender Conor Coady will miss England’s Nations League games against Belgium and Iceland, the Football Association said on Thursday.
Rashford missed Thursday’s 3-0 friendly victory over Ireland because of an injury sustained last weekend for Manchester United and will not return to the squad.
Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Coady has been forced to self-isolate having discovered he had come into contact with somebody prior to joining the camp who had tested positive for COVID-19 via an NHS Test and Trace alert.
Coady had returned two negative tests as part of the FA and UEFA’s protocol but has to adhere to a period of self-isolation under UK government health protocols.
England play Belgium in Leuven on Sunday before hosting Iceland at Wembley on Wednesday.
