Slovakia manager, Pavel Hapal, has coronavirus

Slovakia, Ireland's conquerors in last week's Euro 2020 playoff, have confirmed that their manager, Pavel Hapal, has tested positive for Covid-19.

Since their penalty shoot out win over Ireland, Slovakia have played away to Scotland in the Nations League and also host Israel in that competition tomorrow.

But Hapal has stood aside for the game following a positive test and his assistant will take charge.
