The FA is investigating media reports in Iceland that Mason Greenwood and Phil Foden breached UEFA's coronavirus protocols while at their team hotel in Reykjavik.

Both players - who made their England debuts in the 1-0 win over Iceland two days ago - were absent from training on Monday morning and are doubtful for the UEFA Nations League fixture away to Denmark.

England manager Gareth Southgate is due to hold his pre-match news conference shortly.

The pair were the only players absent as Southgate took his final tactical session at the Laugardalsvollur Stadium in Reykjavik before Tuesday's game.

Kieran Trippier and Danny Ings are both fit for selection despite suffering a head clash during training on Monday morning.

A sprint drill saw the two players collide and fall to the floor, with both needing attention from the England medical team.

Trippier had to leave the field for about five minutes but returned and took part in the rest of the session.
