The restrictions imposed by the United Kingdom to manage the second wave of Covid-19 pandemic are creating havoc within the football world.

In fact, there is a ban on entry into the United Kingdom for non-British citizens from Denmark and consequently this would prohibit the Icelandic national team from entering the country, as they will face the Danish team in Copenhagen on Sunday.

The Nations League match between England and Iceland scheduled on November 18 at Wembley Stadium could, realistically, be played in Albania. Another problem if the match between Midtjylland, a Danish team, and Liverpool of Champions’ League Group Stage.

As reported by the Daily Mail, the two football Federations are working to find a solution for the Nations League match. One could be to move the match to a neutral location and Albania is willing to host the game. Germany could be the second option.

As for the challenge between Midtjylland and Liverpool, it is possible that the situation will change by December 12, although according to Liverpool Echo the match will most likely be postponed.
