Greenwood England Debut Ends Naively


Manchester United rising striker Mason Greenwood was Monday kicked out of the England team after breaching Covid-19 rules in Iceland.

He has been sent back home after he was found to have gone against the rules with fellow England international Phil Foden, who plays for Manchester City.

“Whilst in Iceland, both Phil Foden and Mason Greenwood spent time outside of our private team area, which was a breach of our COVID-19 rules.

“While they did not leave the team hotel, it was an unacceptable breach of our protocol. They have both apologised for their serious lack of judgement,” said the English FA in a statement.

England play Denmark in the Nations League on Tuesday. They beat Iceland 1-0 in their away match last Saturday. Both Greenwood and Foden played in that match.

Their clubs will now determine if they will be available to play when the Premier League resumes this weekend.

England Manager Gareth Southgate termed the players’ actions “naive”.
