Another Republic of Ireland player tests positive for Covid-19

Another member of the Republic of Ireland squad has tested positive for Covid19 ahead of Wednesday’s Nations League clash with Finland.

Another round of testing took place after yesterday’s draw with Wales, with a positive test returned for one player.

The Irish Independent report that the player is not believed to be one of the four close contacts to the squad member who tested positive ahead of the Wales game.

The FAI are now awaiting retest to rule out a false positive.

Aaron Connolly and Cork’s Adam Idah have returned to the squad after missing the games with Slovakia and Wales, while Jason Knight, Dara O’Shea, Ronan Curtis and Ryan Manning have been called up.
