Lukaku will join Belgian teammates after he tests negative for Covid-19. A recent report revealed that the players will reject call-ups from national teams if any more players test positive. While Director Ausilio has tested negative, Beppe Marotta is yet to recover. However, a recent source revealed that he is doing better than before. The match against Sassuolo was postponed by a week. As 13 players and a few members of the staff and management tested positive for Covid-19. De Vrij and Vecino are in home quarantine.
Danilo D’Ambrosio, Samir, Stefan de Vrij, and Matias Vecino were amongst the ones that tested positive. But no new positive cases have come up. The local health authority in Milan had suspended all football activities due to the cases until Sunday. Today, Inter players were tested for Covid-19 again and Lukaku has tested negative for Covid-19. Milan’s local authority was under pressure from four countries. Croatia, Belgium, Denmark, and Slovakia are amongst these. Morocco might join the list further. These countries want the players to travel since the World Cup qualifying matches are drawing close.
Lukaku will join Belgian teammates and will also train with the team
Lukaku will join Belgian teammates as Roberto Martinez included him in his squad last week. However, his availability was unknown. ” He is under Belgium’s Covid-19 protocols and will be training with the team like any other sportsman”, said Inter’s press officer. Belgium is at the top of the FIFA rankings and will face Wales after they take on the Czech Republic and Belarus. The Belgian team will miss out on Eden Hazard. He is suffering from a muscle injury in the right leg.
Inter will face Sassuolo this week as there are no new Covid-19 cases at Inter. Inter are leading the Serie A table by nine points. With 11 matches to go, the Nerazzurri would like to maintain their 9 matches winning streak. Before heading for the finals, Conte would want a positive mindset and a prepared team. Inter wouldn’t want their squad to miss out on the most important part of the season. Since Inter have come so close to the Scudetto after a 10-year wait, they’d want to maintain the lead in Serie A.
