Doherty and McClean both started in Ireland’s 1-0 defeat to Wales this past weekend, where another Tottenham player, Gareth Bale had come in contact with the right-back. Two other Spurs stars – Ben Davies and Joe Rodon were also involved in the game.

Naturally, the situation has left the fans worried and questioning the need of international breaks given the current situation all across the world.
