England Under-19s’ game against Scotland Under-19s had to be abandoned on Thursday after it was revealed a backroom staff member had tested positive for Covid-19.
England led 3-1 in the contest, which was held at St George’s Park, when it was halted.
“The England men’s Under-19s’ match with Scotland was abandoned in the first half as a precaution, in line with Covid-19 protocol,” read a Football Association statement. “We are not in a position to comment further at this time.” The Scottish FA released an almost exact same statement.
It is unclear which team’s backroom staff member has tested positive but it is believed the testing was carried out by the Scottish FA.
England’s squad includes Liverpool’s Harvey Elliott and Manchester United’s Teden Mengi.
