Damien Duff the Scots Must be Having a ‘giggle’ Over Ruling Mount & Chilwell Out

Posted by

The former Ireland and Chelsea winger Damien Duff is working with RTE for the European Championships and says the Scots most be having a right old laugh at having both Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell having to self isolate having been a close contact with their Chelsea teammate Billy Gilmour.

“We tasted that with Ireland (when he was a coach under Stephen Kenny), negative tests but they still get sent home and miss caps. These two guys are potentially missing a very big game because of being a close contact.

You wouldn’t wish covid on anyone after what it’s done to the world. I hope, and I’m sure, that by the sounds of things they are negative and they are okay.

But in the Scottish dressing room, I’m sure they’re having a giggle.

Billy Gilmour has dominated them on the pitch and now two days later he has sent a couple of them into isolation. You couldn’t make it up really…

I’m still worried for [England], even with this now today with Mount. Kane has said he’s going to play, Maguire still has to come back in so we might see a change in formation.

[Southgate] has said over the past month that he knows ten of his best 11, he absolutely doesn’t. I think there will be changes.

I don’t think it’s a given that they’re going to beat the Czechs.”
