England-based Eagles to isolate after AFCON qualifiers


Super Eagles players in the English Premier League and the Championship will self-isolate for 10 days on their return to the United Kingdom.

The Eagles have six players who would return to England after helping the national team qualify for the 2021 Africa Cup Of Nations billed for Cameroon next year.

They are William Troost-Ekong, Alex Iwobi, Wilfred Ndidi, Kelechi Iheanacho, Semi Ajayi and Ola Aina.

According to the new UK government rules on coronavirus, they can reduce the isolation period to just five days on the provision of a negative COVID-19 test.

This also means they may miss their respective clubs league games this weekend.
