A second player on Greece’s national football has tested positive for COVID-19 just three days after a player was sent home from Slovenia.
In a statement made by the Hellenic Football Federation (HFF) last Friday, the first player was tested by UEFA and kept away from the squad for 36 hours before leaving Ljubljana on Saturday 5 September.
On Monday the HHF released a second statement explaining that a second player on the team also contracted the coronavirus, but kept their identity hidden.
The news comes a day after Greece’s 2-1 win over Kosovo on Sunday’s UEFA Nations League match.

The HFF stated the latest case was confirmed after the team was tested upon their arrival in Athens from Pristina.
The federation also said they were implementing European soccer governing body UEFA’s medical protocol and alerted the country’s health authorities.
Greece is currently sitting at the top of League C’s standings in the tournament, just ahead of Slovenia who both share four points and will be playing on home soil against Moldova on 11 October.
