The game is due to kick-off at 7:45pm tonight UK time at the MSV Arena – home to third tier side MSV Duisberg.

Bild claim the players are supposed to self-isolate and a team meeting scheduled for this morning has been cancelled in an attempt to reduce any risk of further transmission.

One option could be to roll-out a series of rapid-tests to the entire Germany squad to see if there are any more positive results returned.

If they come back clear then it is hoped that the match can go ahead as planned.
