Gareth Southgate has labelled Mason Greenwood and Phil Foden as 'naive' after the England duo were caught bringing girls back to the team hotel, breaking strict quarantine rules in the process.

As a result, Foden and Greenwood will not travel with their team-mates to Denmark today after footage emerged of the pair breaking quarantine measures.

Southgate revealed that Greenwood, 18, and Foden, 20, have both apologised for their actions but the England boss has decided they would not travel with the rest of the squad to Copenhagen.

'Unfortunately this morning it was brought to my attention that the two boys have broken the COVID guidelines in terms of our secure bubble - had to decide they couldn’t have interaction with the rest of the team,' Southgate told Sky Sports.

'Nothing has happened in the areas we occupy in the hotel. We are still getting the depths of the information. Still getting to grips with the detail. We have spent such a long time getting measures in place and the whole squad followed that to the letter.

'I’m not going into any more details until I’m clear of everything. No-one from outside the hotel has been into the areas we occupy. 

'We are very clear that no other members of our party have been in contact with the two players - couldn’t join us for breakfast or training. It is a very serious situation and we have treated it that way.
