Controversial Glasgow Rangers player Jordan Jones was pictured at Wembley in the build-up to the Euro 2020 final despite the ongoing pandemic.
The Lowdown: Jones broke Covid regulations last season
Jones seemed to have a chance of becoming an important squad member for Steven Gerrard last season, but he broke Covid regulations towards the end of last year along with George Edmundson.
He duly received a seven-game ban for this indiscretion (BBC) and eventually joined Sunderland on loan for the second half of the 2020/21 campaign.
The Latest: Jones at Wembley
On Sunday, England lost to Italy on penalties in the Euro 2020 final at Wembley.
In the build-up to the match, Jones was spotted in a packed Wembley Way (via Glasgow Live).
The Verdict: Silly
You would have thought that Jones, who has 15 career goals to his name (Transfermarkt), had learned his lesson after what happened last year, but clearly not. The clash at Wembley was the sporting event with the highest attendance in the United Kingdom since the start of the pandemic, so the potential for the virus to spread was huge.
Should Jones have stayed away?
As a professional footballer, Jones must remain more pragmatic than others. He appears to have made a huge error of judgement here by attending the match along with 65,000 other spectators. If Gerrard was already thinking of moving him on before this weekend, there could be a greater chance that he will do so now.
