The Chelsea pair have been forced to self-isolate after coming in contact with Billy Gilmour, who tested positive for COVID-19 last week.

England

are set to host

Germany

in their Euro 2020 round-of-16 tie on Tuesday. Gareth Southgate’s side saw two of their players miss their last group stage match against the Czech Republic due to COVID-19 protocols.

Mason Mount

and

Ben Chilwell

have been forced to self-isolate since coming in contact with their Chelsea teammate Billy Gilmour, who tested positive for COVID-19 last week.

The pair are set to continue to self-isolate until midnight on Monday, with the English FA exploring options to reduce the self-isolation time. However, both Chilwell and Mount trained without the presence of their England teammates during the team's training session on Saturday. The pair’s Chelsea teammate

Declan Rice

claimed on Friday that both players will join the team for this weekend’s training sessions.

"I spoke to him [Chilwell] yesterday [Thursday] - he tested negative again.”

Rice said.

"He's been keeping himself fit in the room by doing the bike and what not, 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 other 24 players in England’s squad are ready for the Three Lions’ crucial match against Germany. Having been eliminated by Die Mannschaft in the 1990 World Cup, Euro 96, and the 2010 World Cup, England are hoping to continue their Euro 2020 campaign with a revenge victory against the Germans.
