List Of Premier League Stars Who’ll Miss W’Cup Qualifiers And Why



Alex Iwobi, Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho are among the stars set to miss upcoming World Cup Qualifiers unless quarantine rules are lifted.

According to Sky Sports, European Club Association (ECA) members are set to prevent their players from going to ‘red-list’ countries during September’s international.

The Premier League is currently in talks with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport (DCMS).

Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Turkey, Uruguay, Brazil and Egypt are among the nations currently on the UK Government’s “red” list regarding travel to England, meaning a 10-day period of hotel isolation would be required before players can return to their clubs.
