West Brom forward Callum Robinson has had an unfortunate couple of months with the Republic of Ireland.

The 25-year-old has tested positive for COVID-19 this week, and will therefore miss upcoming games against England, Wales and Bulgaria.

In the October international break, Robinson was also forced out of action due to coming into close contact with someone else who had tested positive.

Republic of Ireland manager Stephen Kenny has claimed that Robinson has missed out on five guaranteed international starts in the past two months.

“In Callum’s case he tested positive in the first test, he wasn’t feeling unwell and it’s unfortunate. You have to deal with whatever comes your way,” he told the Independent.

“I am disappointed for Callum as between being a close contact last time and this, it’s cost him five starts. I’m disappointed for him as he was looking forward to this run of games.”

This will be a massive blow for Robinson.

The Baggies forward will be desperate for more playing time with both Ireland and the Albion after a difficult couple of months.

After dropping out of the Ireland squad back in October, Robinson had to settle for a place on the bench against Burnley, Brighton and Fulham.

Slaven Bilic finally handed the 25-year-old a start against Spurs, and yet again, he has been handed bad news after – hopefully, he will be back fighting against Manchester United in 10 days from now.
