London (AP) – The England national football team have won their test match against Wales after the fuss over the trio around Jadon Sancho.
Coach Gareth Southgate’s team won 3-0 (1-0). Dominic Calvert-Lewin (26th), Conor Coady (53rd) and Danny Ings (63rd) scored against their neighbors at Wembley Stadium in London.
Southgate had parted ways with Borussia Dortmund’s young star Sancho as well as Tammy Abraham and Ben Chilwell after the trio published photos of an alleged surprise party for Abraham. The birthday party is said to have taken place last Saturday. The results of the corona tests were not available in time. “I think the players have long realized they were wrong,” said Southgate before the game in Wales. “You violated the lockdown guidelines.”
England will meet Belgium in the Nations League on Sunday. The Belgians did not get further than a 1: 1 (0: 0) against Ivory Coast on Thursday evening in their test match. Former Dortmund player Michy Batshuayi (53rd) scored for the hosts, Franck Kessié (86th) equalized.
