Portugal lose Cancelo for Euros to coronavirus

The Manchester City defender has been replaced in the squad after testing positive

Joao Cancelo has had to leave the Portugal camp ahead of the European Championships after testing positive for coronavirus this weekend.

The Manchester City defender was set to start for Portugal at the tournament but the decision has been taken to replace him with Diogo Dalot, the Milan full-back.

Dalot arrived in good shape. He was part of the Portugal U21 side that made the final of the U21 Euros earlier this month.

As revealed by the Portuguese Federation, the Hungarian health authorities were advised immediately and Cancelo went straight into isolation.
