England's Nations League clash with Iceland could be held in Albania

Albania is being considered as an alternative venue due to restrictions on travellers to the UK from Denmark.

Albania has emerged as a potential venue for England’s Nations League game against Iceland next week.

The Wembley clash on Wednesday, November 18 has been put at risk following the Government’s ban on arrivals from Denmark, which includes all elite sportspeople who had previously been exempt from restrictions.

Iceland are scheduled to play Denmark in Copenhagen on Sunday ahead of meeting Gareth Southgate’s side and seem set to fall victim to the updated rules.

The FA is still awaiting clarification from the UK Government on whether the game can go ahead.

But the PA news agency understands Albania is being considered as a potential neutral venue to host a fixture which could decide qualification for the next stage of the Nations League.

England and Denmark are level on seven points in Group A2, two points behind leaders Belgium.

Southgate’s side head to Belgium on Sunday before tackling pointless Iceland on Wednesday, when Denmark are scheduled for a trip to Belgium.

UK residents can return from Denmark but must isolate along with all members of their household for 14 days.
