West Brom ace Hal Robson-Kanu has been sent home from international duty after breaching FAW protocol. 

Roberts, along with Leeds’ Tyler Roberts and Stoke’s Rabbi Matondo have all been sent home after breaking curfew while away on international duty with Wales.

The Athletic claim the breach had nothing to do with COVID as the players were simply caught out of their bedrooms after curfew.

A Welsh FA statement said, Three members of the Cymru senior national squad – Hal Robson-Kanu, Rabbi Matondo and Tyler Roberts – have been released from the Welsh camp today after breaching FAW protocol.

“The three players will be returning to their respective clubs this afternoon. The FAW will not be making any further comment.”

This is incredibly disappointing from a seasoned international and experienced club player like Robson-Kanu.

Even though there is no suggestion that COVID rules were broken, all rules set by a team must be observed though it does seem harsh to send the players home if they were simply out of their rooms after bedtime.

Still, this doesn’t look good for Robson-Kanu and he is bound to be scrutinised by the media as a result of his actions.

The forward hasn’t played too much of a role for us since Mbaye Diagne came in a few months ago and it remains to be seen if he will remain at the club next season.

We can only be thankful that HRK won’t have to isolate on his return to the club as The Athletic’s report suggests there was no COVID rule breaking.

You’d also think we’d be told if it was COVID related considering we’re still surviving through a global pandemic.

Either way, this is not good news for Robson-Kanu and we’re sure Sam Allardyce will have a few questions for him once he arrives back at the club in the coming days.
