Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell were denied the opportunity to train normally ahead of the England-Germany clash – as they were not called in by the Track and Trace service.

The Chelsea pair are both serving ten days of isolation that don’t end until midnight on Monday, meaning they can’t train with the Three Lions before Tuesday’s game.

But SunSport has learned that they could have been part of Gareth Southgate’s plans had they been contacted by the NHS Track and Trace team and told them to self-isolate instead of providing the information themselves.

Meanwhile, Declan Rice is looking forward to facing Toni Kroos on Tuesday night after their love on Twitter earlier this year.

The West Ham midfielder revealed his admiration for the Germany mainstay on social media in April.

And Rice said on Friday, “I don’t remember what my tweet was, but I woke up saying ‘thank you mate’.

“It was a good time to be fair and the guys at West Ham were giving me a bit for that.

“When there are the big games and you watch, you like the best footballers. Obviously that night I felt the urge to say (what I did) about Muller and Toni Kroos.

“I am delighted to go there and compete against the best. It’s England against Germany, round of 16, at Wembley, it’s going to be okay, so I have to go there and give a strong performance myself and as a team.

“Kroos is world class, other midfielders like me, we want to test ourselves. But we have to impose the game and be physical with him and keep him from pulverizing him on the pitch.”

And finally, Alvaro Morata revealed that his children received death threats during his Euro 2020 campaign.

Speaking to Spanish radio station Cadena: “I understand that I get criticism for not scoring goals. I am the first to know and accept it.

“I would like people to put themselves in a position to see what it is like to receive threats and insults towards your family: ‘I hope your children die’, [this week] I had to put my phone away.

“[Memes] doesn’t bother me, but what bothers me is what my wife has to endure.

“My children go to Seville with their father’s name on their shirts. Yes [they’ve had things said to them].

“I understand the criticism for not doing my job well. But there is a limit. I didn’t sleep for nine hours after the [Poland] Thu.

“I was angry because I had a chance and Spain couldn’t win.

“I would like people to put themselves in other people’s shoes. People hiss at me because that’s what they hear. Others encourage him.
