Bauman withdraws from German national team after virus in club

Goalkeeper Oliver Baumann has left the Germany national team after a series of coronavirus cases among other players at his club, Hoffenheim.

The German federation said Bauman had tested negative twice since joining the squad on Monday, but will spend time in isolation at home after talks with local health authorities.

Germany play the Czech Republic in a friendly on Wednesday and Frankfurt’s Kevin Trapp will be in goal. The German team also plays in the Nations League against Ukraine on Saturday and Spain on Tuesday.

Five players and two Hoffenheim employees have tested positive for coronavirus since last week. Two of those players, the Danish Robert Skov and the Israeli Munas Dabbur, tested positive after arriving for their national teams ahead of the next matches. A friendly between Norway and Israel was canceled as a result.
