Jude Bellingham ‘Barred’ From Joining Up With The England Senior Squad
Jude Bellingham has been ‘barred’ from travelling to the UK for England duty by Borussia Dortmund because of strict coronavirus guidelines.
Bellingham, 17, was set to be named in Gareth Southgate’s squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against San Marino, Albania and Poland.
The Three Lions boss picks his squad on Thursday and will be without a host of key players including Jordan Pickford and Jack Grealish, among others.
And he could also be without Bellingham who will now have to quarantine for 14 days upon returning to Germany from England.

Bellingham is still waiting to discover whether he can join up with the England team ahead of fixtures at the end of the month.
