Coronavirus again cast a shadow over the 2021 Copa America as Venezuela’s preparations for their opening match versus Brazil were thrown into chaos.

The tournament has been moved from Colombia and Argentina to Brazil amid political unrest in the former nation and a spike in covid-19 cases and deaths in the latter.

“The health department was notified by CONMEBOL that 12 members of the Venezuelan national team’s delegation, including players and coaching staff, tested positive for covid-19,” the secretary of state for Brasilia said in a statement, with the match set to take place at Estadio Nacional in the Brazilian capital.

“They are all asymptomatic, isolated in single rooms and are being monitored.”

The lack of any public statement on the matter from either CONMEBOL or the Venezuelan Football Federation (FVF), means it is unclear how many of the 12 are players.

The Athletic reported at least five players, including captain Tomas Rincon had tested positive, with local reports in Venezuela suggesting a flight for 14 replacement players had been chartered.

Roberto Martínez responds to expectation worry for Belgium in Euro 2020

Roberto Martínez responds to expectation worry for Belgium in Euro 2020. They prepare to open campaign against Russia in St Petersburg.

Roberto Martínez believes Belgium’s players can handle the expectations of a potentially legacy-defining tournament as they prepare to open their Euro 2020 campaign against Russia in St Petersburg.

The Red Devils sit atop FIFA’s world rankings, a position to which a lavishly gifted squad have become accustomed over the recent past.

However, an improvement upon their third-placed finish at the 2018 World Cup will be required to make good on their incredible promise.

“I’m sure that the last three years, when the team reaches the level of continuity and consistency that it’s showed in the world rankings there is more expectation,” Martinez told a pre-match news conference. “There are more neutral fans who follow the team.

“But that doesn’t change anything for us. You grow from expectation within the team. The difficulty is the team we have in front of us. I don’t think this team will suffer because of expectation.”
