Football CZE vs SCO: Cancelled, not cancelled, played

The Czech Football Association cancelled a game planned for Monday due to "the current situation with COVID-19" but failed to tell the opponent - Scotland. Consequently, UEFA did not allow the cancellation and forced the Czech Republic to play.

The Nations League match was played on Monday as planned, although the initial Czech players were not present. Czech lost 2-1 after having to put together a second-string team at the last minute.


The Czech Republic cancelled the game after two footballers were told to self-isolate following contact with a backroom staff member who tested positive for COVID. However, the Scottish FA was surprised by the announcement because they were not officially informed about the cancellation. Therefore, UEFA insisted on playing the game.


With this win, Scotland top the group in the Nations League. The Czech Republic is right behind after winning against Slovakia last week.
