Denmark boss waiting for Uefa update
DENMARK V ENGLAND
Nations League - League A, Group 2
Live on Sky Sports Main Event
Denmark manager Kasper Hjulmand is unsure whether his team’s Nations League clash with England will go ahead after Phil Foden and Mason Greenwood breached coronavirus protocols.
So far there is no suggestion from Uefa that the game is under threat but the episode has led some to question if the fixture should go ahead.
Hjulmandw as left wondering what was happening when he faced the media yesterday afternoon to preview the League A Group 2 tie.
“I only got the information step - ping into the press conference so I didn’t hear about what happened exactly, I didn’t hear about how the bubble was broken and what the consequences could be,” Hjulmand said. “To be honest, I haven’t thought about it. So, I guess in the next minutes, hours I’ll know a little bit more.
“But I think it’s very important that we stay in the principles, in the protocols that we have been given.
“It’s about football and the survival of football. I think that we are able to play is very important.
“There’s been a lot of things going on so we can actually play these matches, so we have to be focused and live up to the protocols.
“It’s not a good situation. It’s not a good situation.”
The Denmark boss, whose side lost to Belgium at the weekend, added: “The Danish FA, DBU, will take care of this situation. We have our security manager, we have our people, our sports director, who would of course look into it.
“I think the protocols are very strict and I think Uefa are very strict.
“We, for sure, will accept whatever Uefa comes up with. If they think it’s a good idea to keep going, of course we’ll see and we hope we can play this game, of course.”
