England may have to forfeit Iceland match after Denmark vs Iceland expected to go ahead

England may have to forfeit their final Nations League group game against Iceland due to government policy after Sky Sports Newslearned that UEFA is expected to sanction Denmark's fixture with the Icelanders in Copenhagen this Sunday.

As things stand, the Government will not allow any of Iceland's players into the country to play the game if they have been in Denmark - where a new strain of coronavirus has been linked to the country's mink farms.

The DCMS has told Sky Sports News they have no plans to re-visit that policy until Saturday - that is the day England fly to Leuven to play Belgium, and four days before England against Iceland is due to take place at Wembley.

It remains unclear whether the possibility of playing the fixture in a neutral venue next Wednesday would be acceptable under the Government's rules.

The Icelandic squad will have been inside Denmark and then come into direct contact with England's players during the game, which could mean England's players having to self-isolate when they re-enter the UK.
