Mason Mount and ben Chilwell continue to train individually for England ahead of the Euro 2020 clash against Germany at Wembley. The FA revealed that they hoped they could join the rest of the squad soon. They were self-isolating after close contact with Billy Gilmour after their goalless draw against Scotland. Gilmour tested positive for the coronavirus immediately after the match. The duo has been self-isolating ever since the incident and missed the last group game against the Czech republic.
“I spoke to him yesterday [Thursday] – he tested negative again.” Declan Rice said ahead of the England vs Germany clash. “He’s been keeping himself fit in the room by doing the bike and whatnot, but hopefully we can have him out, I think maybe tomorrow or the next day, obviously with the negative test. So that would be a massive boost, and obviously having Chilwell back as well, that would be a positive boost for us as well.”
The FA has looked into whether training conditions during project restart could allow the duo to train with the team. At the moment, the duo will be required to train separate from the rest of the team until the daty of the match. England has not been at the best in the tournament so far scoring just two goals in their three matches. Jamie Redknapp revealed that he felt the English players were nervous during the group stage games.
”It has not quite caught fire for the England team so far, but it certainly will do with this game coming up. The excitement will be there for sure. I went to two of the group games; I went to the first against Croatia and there was a good feeling about it and we did enough to get the win.” Redknapp said.
