Portugal, where several outbreaks have been found in the past few weeks, is not on the published list of 59 countries and territories where the British can go on holiday without quarantining upon their return.

The system will go into effect on Friday, July 10, and will prevent those arriving from the approved countries from having to stay in isolation for 14 days, as is currently the case with all people arriving in England from abroad.

On June 17, UEFA announced that the Champions League, which was suspended in March due to the covid-19 pandemic, would be defined through an unprecedented 'final to eight' to be held in neutral stadiums, in Lisbon, at the Luz stadiums ( Benfica) and José Alvalade (Sporting), between 12 and 23 August.

The quarter-final matches will take place between 12 and 15 August, while the semi-finals will take place on 18 and 19, and the final on 23.

"This is a matter for national governments, not UEFA," sad UEFA in a statement, recalling that there have been contacts and meetings between the body that oversees European football and the Portuguese Government for the match.
