It was announced on Monday that Gilmour, who was named man of the match at Wembley, has since tested positive for Covid-19.

Although England's players and coaching staff all returned negative test results on Sunday and Monday afternoon, a statement has confirmed that Mount and Chilwell are now isolating as a precautionary measure after consultation with Public Health England.

"The pair will be kept away from the rest of the England players and wider support team, pending further discussions with Public Health England," the statement explained.

"The entire squad has lateral flow tests on Monday afternoon and all were again negative, as was the case with Sunday's Uefa pre-match PCR tests.

"We will continue to follow all Covid-19 protocols and the Uefa testing regime, while remaining in close contact with Public Health England."

England are currently preparing for their final group game of Euro 2020 against the Czech Republic on Tuesday, where they will hope to confirm their place in the knockout rounds of the tournament.
