Concerns over Andorra’s artificial pitch

A number of Premier League clubs have informed Gareth Southgate of their concerns about their English players risking injury by playing on Andorra’s infamous artificial pitch on Saturday.

The Estadi Nacional, which has a capacity of just over 3,000 people, features a 3G pitch which has attracted immense criticism since it opened its doors in 2014.

“It was by far the worst pitch I have ever played on,” said Wales winger Gareth Bale in 2014. “I can’t describe how bad, bobbly and hard the pitch was to deal with.”

Teammate Aaron Ramsey also stressed a desire never to play on an artificial surface again after rolling his ankle during the same game.

Work has been done on the Estadi Nacional surface since then, but as noted by the Daily Mail, it’s not enough to convince Premier League clubs that their top players are not at risk of injury by playing on the turf.
