The story was shattered by Icelandic publication DV, which said the girls revealed the date to their Snapchat followers late Sunday night. DV spoke to the girls, who told them they didn’t want to discuss it because they didn’t want to cause trouble for Foden and Greenwood. According to DV, they were “devastated” to learn that the footage had entered the public domain.The Football Federation knows the story and is working to establish the facts. He will issue a statement shortly. Foden and Greenwood are clearly identifiable in the snap shots of the Snapchat footage and that adds to another headache for Gareth Southgate, whose team is traveling to Copenhagen to face Denmark on Tuesday night.
The England manager has had to deal with the fallout from Harry Maguire’s arrest and trial in Greece, as well as a series of technical and logistical issues relating to the fitness of players amid the pandemic. The team has been given a waiver of the rule that travelers from states in Iceland must be quarantined for five days upon arrival in the country. Under the exemption, players and staff were not allowed to meet anyone outside of their biosecurity bubble – except when they played the game against Iceland. According to an Icelandic FA employee, they “are not even allowed to meet their families.”
