The Chelsea youngster tested positive for coronavirus on Monday, ruling him out of the clash with Croatia at Hampden tonight.

And his Stamford Bridge teammates were identified as close contacts after CCTV footage showed they spent 20 minutes talking to their pal in the tunnel after Friday’s goalless draw at Wembley.

Once Public Health England confirmed them as being in contact, Mount and Chilwell were immediately told they needed to isolate until Monday 28 June.

They were then ordered to leave England’s West London hotel and return to St George’s Park to quarantine.

And it is understood that rather than ferry them back up north in the back of one of their fleet of cars, it was decided the only way they could guarantee security was to use two separate ambulances.
