Bellingham to join England despite Germany travel restrictions

Mon 22 March 2021 | 10:07

Borrusia Dortmund’s 17-year-old midfielder, Jude Bellingham, has been permitted to join up with the England squad ahead of their World Cup qualifiers despite the fears he would miss the call due to Covid-19 protocols.

The FA confirmed the news via a tweet: “We’re pleased to confirm that — following the latest COVID risk update from German authorities — @BellinghamJude is now permitted to join up with the #ThreeLions tomorrow.”

The midfielder will be available for Gareth Southgate for matches against San Marino, Albania, and Poland.

European countries, such as Germany and France, have been fearful of sending players outside the area due to the need for them to self-isolate upon their return.
