The coronavirus pandemic has added another layer of concern to it all, with players now facing the possibility of contracting the virus while away with their national teams.
Coronavirus is more rife in certain parts of the world, with some national teams’ bubbles less strict than we see in the Premier League.

The last thing that anyone needs is fans running onto the field of play, without face masks, attempting to give players of Mohamed Salah’s calibre a kiss.
Unfortunately, that’s actually what happened in wake of Egypt’s win over Comoros.
