‘Babel still hopeful: Orange attacker waits for corona-virusst’

Ryan Babel has not yet abandoned the hope that he can take action for the Dutch team in the Nations League duel with Poland. The attacker is in a hotel in Amsterdam pending the results of the PCR test that was taken Monday, reports De Cceit.

If this test is negative, Babel will be on a plane to Poland on Tuesday afternoon with his Orange teammates. He stayed on Sunday evening against Bosnia and Herzegovina (3-1) as a precaution. He arrived with the other players at the Johan Cruijff Arena, but informed federal physician Edwin Goedhart that he was not feeling well. Then he returned to Zeist.
The 33-year-old Galatasaray attacker then delivered a positive rapid test. Tuesday it will be clear if he‘s actually infected with the coronavirus. In that case, he would only be allowed to return to Istanbul on a private flight. This is not an option for the KNVB, so the union has already arranged a temporary shelter for him, where he can spend his quarantine. That is where the 67-fold international is also waiting for the results of the test.
National coach Frank de Boer set the door ajar on Sunday after the duel with Bosnia. โ€œIn the past, there have been more errors testing. Let’
s hope for Ryan that it is now again. But at least he had symptoms.โ€
