Adama Traore tests positive for COVID-19, set to miss Spain’s squad
Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore has tested positive for COVID-19 according to Spanish news outlet Marca.
The 24 year-old is part of the players called picked by Luis Enrique to represent Spain in the Uefa Nations league later this month.
But Traore will not be part of the squad after he was confirmed that he has been infected with the virus.
Real Sociedad’s Mikel Oyarzabal was the first player in the squad to test positive for COVID-19.
Every player must undergo testing as part of UEFA’s mandatory protocol for the any Uefa Nations League match to hold.
Adama Traore is yet to be capped by Spain all thanks to the injury that ensured he pulled out from the Spanish squad that faced Romania and Malta in November 2019.
The Wolves attacker was close to playing for Mali last year as he was eligible to feature for the West African country.
But everything changed as soon as Spain handed him a call up.
The rampaging virus appear to have snatched his second chance of being capped by Spain but another chance should present itself soon.
Although if Traore test negative for COVID-19 in the second round of testing scheduled for later today, he will make the team.
