Czech Republic vs Scotland postponed after Covid-19 outbreak

 Czech Republic won 3-1 in Slovakia on Friday

Scotland's Nations League match in the Czech Republic on Monday has been postponed after a Covid-19 outbreak amid the home squad, says the Czech FA.

West Ham midfielder Tomas Soucek and RB Leipzig striker Patrik Schick are self-isolating after coming into contact with a backroom staff member who tested positive for the virus.

The duo left the squad before the Czechs beat Slovakia 3-1 on Friday.

But the Scotland game has been called off "due to representatives decision".

The Scottish FA is "aware" of the reports but has not "received any official notification" from the Czechs and has contacted Uefa for clarification.

The Czech party delayed their journey to Bratislava by 24 hours while the entire squad was re-tested and travelled by road in small groups rather than flying the 200 miles.

On Thursday, the Czech FA denied suggestions they had failed to adhere to Covid guidelines.

"Without Uefa ordering this, all members of the national team and other people were tested with a negative result before the start of the event," it said.

"At the same time, the whole team has clearly set rules of conduct in hotels and stadiums. The football association has invested significant financial, time and personnel resources in these measures."
