England's UEFA Nations League clash with Iceland in doubt due to new coronavirus travel restrictions


Gareth Southgate England

The UEFA Nations League match between England and Iceland may have to be postponed after the UK issued a travel ban on visitors coming from Denmark.

Under the new rules whichwere implemented from 4am onSaturday, non-British national or resident travelling from Denmark will be denied entry to the country, while those living in the UK who are returning from the Scandinavian country will have to go into quarantine for two weeks.

Although elite athletes have been exempt from some travel restrictions, the government has warned that will not be the case in this instance.

"Yesterday the Department for Transport announced that Denmark would no longer be on theUK’stravel corridors list. We are also now expanding the self-isolation requirements for Denmark," a statement from the government read.

"From 4am onNovember 7, British nationalsor residentswho are returning to theUKdirectly or indirectly from Denmark will need toself-isolatealong with all other members of their household until 2 weeks have passed since they were last in Denmark.

"Unlike other travel to theUK, there will be noexemptions to this quarantine policy."

The restrictions will be reviewed after a week and theFootball Association (FA) is seeking clarification about the situation from the government.

Denmark have already made changes to their squad for the upcoming matches in response to the new rules in England, though they are still waiting for answers from the government and FA.

Kasper Schmeichel, Jonas Lossl, Andreas Christensen, Jannik Vestergaard, Henrik Dalsgaard, Mathias Jensen and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg are not expected to be part of the squad for the upcoming friendly against Sweden because they all play in England.

Under UEFA's policy, matches can be moved to a later dateor played at a neutral venue, thoughBBC Sportreports that rescheduling the tie has been ruled out.
