The busy schedule means players are back in action this weekend as the Premier League returns and clubs naturally want their international stars back in training as soon as possible.
As a result, England’s Premier League players will be tested for Covid-19 tonight after their Nations League game with Iceland and before they leave Wembley Stadium.
The test is expected to deliver rapid results, meaning players will know whether they are able to link up with their clubs tomorrow.
The plan is in place for all England’s Premier League players, but it is unclear if those who play their club football abroad – such as Borussia Dortmund duo Jadon Sancho and Jude Bellingham – will be tested too.
The rapid testing is a boost for Premier League managers and particularly Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.
The Blues are back in action on Saturday at 12.30pm when they travel to Newcastle, meaning the likes of striker Tammy Abraham and defender Ben Chilwell have an exceptionally tight turnaround after England’s game with Iceland tonight.
