Gerrit Holtmann’s Azkals debut delayed as he contracts COVID-19

Gerrit Holtmann’s much-awaited Azkals debut will have to wait.

His mother club VfL Bochum 1848 announced on Sunday evening (Manila time) that the 26-year-old Fil-German winger has tested positive for COVID-19.

Also testing positive for the Bundesliga club are Greek defender Vasilis Lampropoulos and forward Tom Weilandt.

This will make him unavailable for the Tri-Nation tournament which also has Malaysia and Singapore competing.

The Azkals face Malaysia on March 23 and Singapore on March 29.

The remaining forwards left in the team are PT Prachuap’s Patrick Reichelt, United City’s Mark Hartmann, Kirivong Sok Sen Chay’s OJ Porteria, and Johor Darul’s Bienve Maranon.
