Contact cases of the Scotsman Billy Gilmour, the English internationals Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell will remain in isolation until Monday, June 28 inclusive, according to their federation. They could therefore miss the round of 16 of Euro 2021.
We know more about the treatment of Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell. On Monday, the English Federation (FA) announced the isolation of the two internationals after the positive coronavirus test of the Scotsman Billy Gilmour, their teammate at Chelsea, with whom they had exchanged last Friday on the sidelines of England- Scotland (0-0) at the Euro. A health measure that will be applied … until Monday June 28 inclusive.
“The duo will isolate themselves from the rest of the group participating in the Euro (…) until next Monday, specifies the FA on Tuesday in a new press release. This decision was taken in consultation with the health authorities. ( …) Until then, Chilwell and Mount will be training individually in private areas at England’s St. George’s Park training base, with the rest of the squad returning after Tuesday night’s game against the Czech Republic at Wembley. “

For them to play eighth, England must finish first in Group D
Concretely, this means that the two Chelsea players will miss the last group match against the Czechs on Tuesday (9 p.m.), but perhaps also the round of 16 for England. If the Three Lions finish 3rd in Group D, they could indeed play on Sunday June 27. If they finish 2nd, their eighth will fall on Monday June 28 – the last day of isolation. Only the first place (and a scenario like third), which would lead to an 8th on Tuesday, June 29 at Wembley, would therefore allow Chilwell and Mount to be part of the game.
The left side, left in the stands in the first match against Croatia (1-0), then on the bench against Scotland, has not yet played a minute in this Euro. But the attacking midfielder has played the entire two games.
