Chelsea and England striker Tammy Abraham has apologised “for the naivety shown” after he was reported to have breached coronavirus guidelines.
The Sun reported about 20 people, including England team-mates Ben Chilwell and Jadon Sancho, attended a surprise party for Abraham’s 23rd birthday at his home on Saturday.
Gatherings of more than six people are banned in England.
Abraham said he was unaware the party was planned but “deeply regrets” it.
The party happened hours after Abraham played in Chelsea’s 4-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday and before he was set to join up with the England squad this week.
Last month, Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden and Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood were dropped from an England camp after an “unacceptable” breach of coronavirus quarantine guidelines in Iceland.
