YOUTH - OTHER Bad luck for Mario Stroeykens, Arno Herssens and Lucas Stassin: the trio, like their teammates and staff of the national U 17 team, has to be quarantined for a week. The reason: 14 of the teasm's 22 player have passed a positive corona test. It is not known whether the Anderlecht trio is actually infected.
Stroeykens, Herssens and Stassin stayed with the national U17 in Germany for two exhibition matches. They lost the first match on Thursday 4-3, the second game normally had to take place Saturday. That fell through because 14 of the 22 players and three of the seven staff members tested positive for corona after the first game.
Everyone took a negative test before traveling to Germany. The football association assumes that the infections took place on the bus to Germany and that one super spreader is the trigger.
All players and staff members must now be quarantined for a week. They also undergo a new corona test.
