England Under-21’s friendly against Romania in Bucharest on Friday evening has
been canceled after two members of the group tested positive for COVID-19.
The Young Lions were due to play a friendly in Bucharest on Friday but will no longer
travel. It would have been coach Lee Carsley’s first game in charge after he was
appointed in July.
“It has been decided to cancel the trip as a precaution and our thanks go to the
Romanian Football Federation for their understanding.
“The individuals concerned were immediately isolated from the rest of the group,
with the squad still based at St. George’s Park.”
Carsley’s squad are now due to face Kosovo in Milton Keynes on Tuesday in their Euro
2023 qualifying opener.
