Covid-19: Higuain tests positive ahead of MLS Cup playoff

Nov 21, 2020 16:55 IST

Inter Miami star Gonzalo Higuain will not line up for the MLS Cup playoff match against Nashville SC later on Friday as he along with 2 other players have tested positive for Covid-19. Though the club, co-owned by David Beckham, didn't confirm the names, a source confirmed the report to ESPN that apart from Higuain, his brother Federico Higuain and Leandro Gonzalez Pirez have contracted the virus. The game, now set to be overshadowed by Higuain's absence, was set to be a showdown of two expansion sides reaching the MLS Cup playoffs in their first year.
