Czech Republic Refuse to Play against Scotland for the Nations League


The Czech Republic are refusing to play against Scotland on Monday.

After a COVID-19 outbreak in the team, the Czech Republic has announced that they will not fulfill Monday’s Nations League fixture against Scotland.

In their opener in Group 2 of League B on Friday, Jaroslav Silhavy’s side defeated Slovakia 3-1 and were due to meet Scotland in Olomouc.

But now, players are isolating themselves and Slavia Prague are calling for others to withdraw.

A message on the Czech Republic’s official Twitter on Friday read: “The national team will not play against Scotland on Monday due to representatives’ decision and the current situation with the COVID-19.

“The national team ends current preparations with the immediate effect straight after the win against Slovakia.”

The Czechs have thus pulled out of the team, with Tomas Soucek and Patrik Schick self-isolating after a staff member tested positive for coronavirus, and Slavia Prague asking seven of their players to withdraw from the squad.
