Saka withdraws from England squad after positive Covid test1 min read
Bukayo Saka has left England’s training camp as he has tested positive for Covid-19.
The Arsenal winger had been isolating from the rest of the squad at St. George’s Park since Wednesday and has now returned home.
England have confirmed that no further replacements are planned with a squad of 24 in place for friendlies at Wembley Stadium against Switzerland on Saturday and Ivory Coast on Tuesday.
Saka has scored four goals and got four assists in 14 caps for England and was nominated for March’s Premier League Player of the Month award for his fine performances for Arsenal.
He tweeted: “I am gutted to withdraw from the England camp but I have tested positive for Covid-19 and I will be isolating until I am negative.
“I’ll be supporting the boys from home this weekend and I can’t wait to be being back doing what I love soon.”
