THE Scottish FA have contacted UEFA after their Czech Republic counterparts claimed their Nations League match against Scotland on Monday was off due to coronavirus.

The Football Association of the Czech Republic released a statement last night saying the Group B2 fixture had been postponed. 

However, the SFA have received no official notification from them or European football's governing body - who are the only organisation able to cancel a game under their jurisdiction.

The Czechs beat Sloavia 3-1 away last night, but their prearations were thrown into turmoil this week when a member of the backroom team tested positive for Covid-19.

West Ham midfielder Tomas Soucek and RB Leipzig striker Patrik Schick were withdrawn from the squad and told to self-isolate after coming into contact with the staff member.


The Czech statement said: "The national team will not play against Scotland on Monday due to representatives (sic) decision and the current situation with COVID-19.

"The national team ends current preparations with the immediate effect straight after the win against Slovakia."

An SFA spokesman said: "We are aware of reports that the Football Association of the Czech Republic have taken the decision not to play Monday's game. 

"We have not received any official notification from the Football Association of the Czech Republic to that effect but have contacted UEFA for confirmation on the status of the match. We wil update further when we receive clarification."
