After Arsenal, Inter also abandon Florida Cup

After Arsenal pulled out due to a COVID-19 cluster, it’s reported Inter are also abandoning the Florida Cup.

They had been due to play against Arsenal in Orlando as part of the pre-season tournament on Sunday.

The winners of that game would then face the victors of Everton vs. Millionarios at the same venue.

Arsenal announced late last night that they were “sadly forced to withdraw” from the Florida Cup following some positive tests among the planned travelling party.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Inter are now ready to pull out too, scrapping their pre-season American jaunt.

The Nerazzurri had already been anxious about the idea of the tournament, following growing COVID cases in the USA and particularly Florida.

Simone Inzaghi and his squad were meant to fly out to Florida tomorrow.

It now remains to be seen if Everton and Millionarios will go ahead with their game, and if they’ll simply play each other again for the second match too.
