Sweden’s national team players based in England and Scotland will not be present for the international training match against Denmark, next week, due to the UK’s quarantine rules against Denmark.
This means that Victor Nelson Lindelof, Robin Olsen, Emil Kraft, Philip Hellende and Ken Sima will join the national team rally in Stockholm only after the match against the Danes.
– If players need to be quarantined for more than five days after the national team meeting, there is no requirement for clubs to release players. In this case, our players will not be released for the match against Denmark. However, the clubs released players in the other two matches, against Croatia and France, national team manager Stefan Peterson said in a comment on the federation’s website.
Federation captain Jan Andersson, who also missed the match because he is in a Covid quarantine, commented:
These are special times we live in. Now it turns out that way and that means we’ll be bringing in more players for the Danish game, says Anderson.
The same goes for Denmark, which expects among other things to be unable to bring Premier League stars Kasper Schmeichel and Andreas Christiansen to the Sweden meeting. Denmark’s captain, Kasper Hjolmand, has selected nine new players to meet with Plogolt.
