Which players will play in today's game

International football matches: some have to travel, others are not

... but England without English players from Germany?

Obviously, the other way round does not apply. Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund was appointed to the squad in England, but would theoretically have to be in quarantine on his return. Dortmund could therefore refuse to be turned off. "If this would result in any disadvantages for us, we will refuse to be released"said BVB sports director Michael Zorc.

The already ailing Dortmund Raphael Guerreiro is also in the Portuguese squad. However, Portugal is no longer on the list of virus variant areas at the Robert Koch Institute - there is no threat of quarantine.

"If the Portuguese insist, it will be difficult"said Zorc. And then there is Erling Haaland, who is supposed to play with Norway in the "British overseas territory" Gibraltar - a virus variant area.

Possible compromise: stakes in certain games

One solution could be to release players only for certain games. Alaba is allowed, according to Salihamidzic "travel to the national team a few days later". After the start in Scotland, Austria will play at home against the Faroe Islands and Denmark.

A possible solution for Bellingham would therefore be to travel only to the English game in Albania and to forego the two home games. Some games have already been postponed due to the corona rules in the respective countries or regional areas.
