ENGLAND’S Nations League squad has been hit by a Covid-19 crisis — with Raheem Sterling and Harry Maguire both caught up in virus scares.
Sterling partied in Jamaica with Usain Bolt a day before the Olympic legend reportedly tested positive.
And there are fears over Maguire after an outbreak of the virus at a Greek court where he appeared following his arrest over a brawl.
England boss Gareth Southgate will today name Sterling in his squad for the Nations League games against Iceland on September 5 and Denmark three days later.
But the Manchester City striker will have to take a Covid-19 test before joining the rest of the squad.
A source said: “This double blow has given Gareth a real headache.”
The 25-man squad is due to meet up on Sunday and Monday.
Sterling was pictured at Bolt’s 34th birthday party on Friday.
Bolt today said he was selfisolating — but did not confirm a Jamaican radio station’s claim he had tested positive for Covid-19
A source said: “Raheem feels fine and is showing no symptoms.”
