Ukraine's national soccer team is waiting for the decision of Switzerland's authorities if its Nations League match will be allowed tomorrow as three of its players tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday.

"The tests of three players - Eduard Sobol, Yevhen Makarenko and Dmytro Riznyk - had the so-called conditionally negative status yesterday. After additional research, doctors found that these samples contain COVID-19," the team said in a statement.

 

It added that the three players were isolating in their hotel rooms.

Ukraine travelled to Switzerland after being defeated by Germany last Saturday.
