England can count on Jadon Sancho and Tammy Abraham for Sunday’s game against Belgium in the Nations League. England coach Gareth Southgate confirmed this at a press conference on Saturday.
The two players had missed the preparation match against Wales (3-0), Thursday in London, because they had not respected the protocol with regard to the coronavirus. The two players had attended a birthday party for Abraham’s 23rd birthday. On Saturday, the duo resumed training. “They are back in the group and we are moving forward,” Southgate said at a press conference, quoted by English media. “They both trained on Saturday and are available. They missed a few practices, it’s a bit worrying, but it’s done. “
Also present at the party, Ben Chilwell is still uncertain. “Ben was tested again on Saturday. We are waiting for the result for Sunday and will then make a decision. ”
