Saka to Miss friendlies due to COVID-19


Arsenal forward Bukayo Saka will miss England’s upcoming friendlies against Switzerland and Ivory Coast after testing positive for Covid-19.

Saka had been isolating from the rest of the squad at St George’s Park since Wednesday and has now returned home.

England are not planning to call up a replacement for the 20-year-old.

Gareth Southgate’s side play Switzerland on Saturday and Ivory Coast on Tuesday, with both matches taking place at Wembley.
