There is absolutely nothing good about this damned Coronavirus pandemic sweeping the globe. It is not only endangering peoples health, it has closed down Football entirely.
However, as a Chelsea fan, if you were to take one silver lining from this situation and are keen to hear a bit of positive news for once, this will now allow Ruben Loftus-Cheek to play for England in the Euros.
This is because it has been officially confirmed by UEFA today that the competition has been pushed to 2021 instead of 2020 so that clubs can finish their domestic seasons in the summer, hopefully when this pandemic dies down.

Loftus-Cheek had really been struggling to get back to full match fitness enough to have been selected by Frank Lampard so far since his return, and this would have majorly put in doubt his place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the summer finals.
He will now have a lot of time to work on his overall fitness, and hopefully soon enough, be able to work on his match fitness when the team are allowed to return to training.
It will help him build the muscle around the achilles using his home gym whilst in isolation, this will be a major plus and will help him get back to his explosive self.
