The Chelsea playmaker will have to remain in quarantine for the next ten days, which might spell the end of his European Championship campaign.

After testing positive for Covid-19,

Billy Gilmour

has been booted out of Scotland's last

Euro 2020

group match against Croatia. 

Gilmour was left on the bench for Scotland's 2-0 loss to the Czech Republic in their European Championships opener, but Steve Clarke brought the 20-year-old into his starting lineup for their second match against England.

Scotland rallied to a 0-0 stalemate at Wembley to keep their World Cup dreams alive, with Gilmour delivering a man-of-the-match performance in the center of the field. Still, he will now be forced to enter quarantine after getting the coronavirus. 

Following the latest set of medical examinations in the national team camp, the Scottish Football Association (SFA) has announced that the 20-year-old will miss the match against Croatia on Tuesday night at Hampden Park.

"The Scottish FA can confirm that a member of the Scotland National Team playing squad, Billy Gilmour, has tested positive for COVID-19," the 

official SFA statement 


"Having liaised with Public Health England since the positive test was recorded, Billy will now self-isolate for 10 days and therefore miss tomorrow's UEFA EURO 2020 Group D match against Croatia at Hampden."
