Soccer-Rashford and Coady to miss England's Nation League games

LONDON, Nov 12 (Reuters) - Striker Marcus Rashford defender Conor Coady will miss England’s Nations League games against Belgium and Iceland, the Football Association said on Thursday.

Rashford missed Thursday’s 3-0 friendly victory over Ireland because of an injury sustained last weekend for Manchester United and will not return to the squad.

Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Coady has been forced to self-isolate having discovered he had come into contact with somebody prior to joining the camp who had tested positive for COVID-19 via an NHS Test and Trace alert.

Coady had returned two negative tests as part of the FA and UEFA’s protocol but has to adhere to a period of self-isolation under UK government health protocols.
