THREE Wales players have been sent home for breaching Football Association of Wales protocol and will miss Tuesday's World Cup qualifier against the Czech Republic in Cardiff.

An FAW statement read: "Three members of the Cymru senior national squad - Hal Robson-Kanu, Rabbi Matondo and Tyler Roberts - have been released from the Welsh camp today after breaching FAW protocol.

"The three players will be returning to their respective clubs this afternoon.

"The FAW will not be making any further comment."


It is not clear at this stage whether the breach of 'FAW protocol' relates to the coronavirus restrictions.

Robson-Kanu returns to West Brom, Matondo heads back to Stoke and Roberts links back up with Leeds.

The national side is preparing for a clash with the Czech Republic which they must win to keep any realistic hope of qualifying for the next World Cup alive.
