"Vivianne Miedema has unfortunately tested positive for COVID-19 and will therefore go into isolation in the coming days," the Dutch team announced on Tuesday.

"When she no longer has symptoms and tests negative, she can rejoin the team."

Miedema, who plays for Arsenal, scored 14 goals in 22 appearances last season as the north London club finished second in the Women's Super League, where she is the league's all-time top scorer with 74 goals.

The Netherlands drew 1-1 with Sweden in their Group C opener and next play Portugal on Wednesday.
