Ireland's Doherty, McClean test positive for COVID-19

Matt Doherty celebrates scoring his side's first goal with James McClean of Republic of Ireland during the UEFA EURO2020 Qualifier match between Republic of Ireland and Denmark at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

Ireland defender Matt Doherty and winger James McClean have tested positive for COVID-19, the Football Association of Ireland (FAI) said on Monday.

Last week, Ireland midfielder Alan Browne and striker Callum Robinson also tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

"The rest of the staff & squad tested negative ahead of the flight back to Dublin this morning before the match against Bulgaria on Wednesday," the FAI said on Twitter here.


Ireland, who lost 1-0 away to Wales on Sunday, are third in the Nations League Group B4 with two points from five games and host bottom-placed Bulgaria on Wednesday.
