Latest: Foden and Greenwood have been Sacked from England Camp amid the Nations League Tournament

The Manchester City player, Phil Foden and the Manchester United player, Mason Greenwood have been sacked this morning from the camp of the England senior national team.

Information reaching Goal.com unveils that the two players had broke the COVID-19 protocols amid allowing girls into their hotel rooms.

The two young players made their debut in the England senior national team, just this year in the Nations League in the match with Iceland. England scored a goal to nil against Iceland.

Phil Foden and Greenwood have been sacked from the camp. They will not be featured in England's next match against Denmark and the others.

Gareth Southgate, the headcoach of the England national team made it clear that the England Football Association had earlier on broke the news that the two players had been sacked from the camp.

I quote his words;

"Unfortunately this morning it was brought to my attention that two boys have broken the Covid guidelines in terms of our secure bubble and so we had to decide very quickly that they couldn’t have any interaction with the team," he told reporters.

"These are two boys I don’t know particularly well at the moment so can’t speak in great depth. I have got to try and speak with them later in the appropriate way. They have got responsibilities and they have apologised.

"We are very clear that no other members of our party have been in contact with the two players - couldn’t join us for breakfast or training. It is a very serious situation and we have treated it that way.

"I think at the moment I’m trying to take a lot of information in. Obviously they have been naive, we have dealt with it appropriately. I recognise their age but the whole world is dealing with this pandemic."
