Party saga sees trio grounded for now

LONDON • Chelsea pair Tammy Abraham and Ben Chilwell and Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho did not join the England squad yesterday after the three players were filmed apparently flouting coronavirus restrictions at a party.

Abraham has apologised after footage showed the players attending his surprise birthday party in London with more than six people present on Saturday.

Gatherings of more than six are not permitted in England under the latest guidelines.

England have a friendly with Wales on Thursday and Nations League matches against Belgium and Denmark.
