LONDON (Reuters) – The England women’s soccer team have called off Tuesday’s friendly against Germany in Wiesbaden after a member of their backroom team tested positive for COVID-19.
“While we all wanted to play Tuesday’s game, this was absolutely the right course of action. I thank Germany’s staff for their understanding and our FA colleagues for their support,” England coach Phil Neville said in a statement.
The England side have not played a game since losing 1-0 to Spain at the SheBelieves Cup in March.
