Tammy Abraham alongside his team-mates Ben Chilwell and Jadon Sancho are set to miss out of England’s friendly with Wales on Thursday after breaching COVID-19 protocols.
The three players were told by the Football Association to stay at home on Monday rather than report to St George’s Park, where Gareth Southgate assembled his squad.
The trios’ involvement in the Nations Leagues ties against Belgium and Denmark that follow is also in doubt after reports. To have any chance of playing, they need to complete a coronavirus test 48 hours before Thursday’s kick-off.
It is said that the Football Association wants to monitor them to see whether they develop any symptoms and their exclusion from the camp so far is regarded as an extra precaution, with the priority being to ensure the safety of the rest of the squad.
It is understood they were among more than six people at Abraham’s surprise 23rd birthday party on Saturday, thereby breaking coronavirus rules in England.
The players, Chelsea forward Abraham, Chelsea left-back Chilwell, 23, and Borussia Dortmund winger Sancho, 20, have all apologized for the breach.
Abraham said he was unaware the party was planned but “deeply regrets” it and has apologized for “the naivety shown”.
The surprise party threw by friends and family at his house to celebrate his 23rd Birthday happened hours after Abraham played in Chelsea’s 4-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.
