Icelandic website reported on Monday that the pair then brought two women back to the England hotel on Sunday, breaking strict isolation rules in the country regarding COVID-19.

This prompted Gareth Southgate to omit both players from England’s Monday afternoon flight from Reykjavik to Copenhagen, where they will play Denmark on Tuesday evening.
