Denmark manager admits frustration at Foden and Greenwood after Covid breach

Denmark boss Kasper Hjulmand admits he is disappointed England stars Mason Greenwood and Phil Foden have let football down.

The Three Lions duo have been kicked out of Gareth Southgate's squad and sent home in disgrace after being caught breaking lockdown rules at the team hotel.

The FA have launched an investigation into how the duo were able to bring two unnamed girls to the hotel in Iceland following England's 1-0 win in Reykjavik last weekend.

The pair will miss tomorrow night’s Nations League clash with the Danes in Copenhagen – and Hjulmand admits Greenwood and Foden could have put the game at risk after breaching England's protocols.

He said: "I only got the information stepping into the press conference, so I didn't hear about what happened exactly, I didn't hear about how the bubble was broken and what the consequences could be.

"But I think it's very important that we stay in the principles, in the protocols that we have been given.

"It's about football and the survival of football. I think that we are still able to play is very important.

"There's been a lot of things going on so we can actually play these matches, so we have to be focused and live up to the protocols. It's not a good situation.

"The Danish FA will take care of this situation. We have our security manager, we have our people, our sports director, who would of course look into it.

"I think the protocols are very strict and I think UEFA are very strict. If they think it's a good idea to keep going, of course we'll see and we hope we can play this game, of course."
