A change to Government quarantine rules could see Ben Brereton miss just one Rovers match when returning from international duty with Chile next month.

Rovers reached an agreement with the Chilean Football Association that will see the club release Brereton for two of Chile’s three qualifiers next month after the 22-year-old didn’t meet up with La Roja for the September matches.

Brereton wasn’t released for the three September World Cup qualifiers due to the 10-day quarantine requirement upon his return from a red list country that would have ruled him out for three matches.

Brereton was set to be hit with the FIFA sanction that would have seen him miss games against Luton Town and Hull City, the latter in which he scored, before a resolution was reached.

Now the Government is looking at reducing the quarantine period for footballers returning from red list countries to five days, which could rule Brereton out of only one match.

Brereton will travel to meet up with the national team after Rovers’ game at Blackpool next weekend, with Chile’s first game coming against Peru on October 8.

They then host Paraguay on October 11 before Brereton will return home, missing the final game against Venezuela which comes four days later.

The timeframe means there is a chance that Brereton could now be available for the trip to QPR on October 19.

Brereton has started this season in good form, with four goals in his opening eight games, and has played every minute of Rovers’ matches this season.

That run is set to come to an end when Rovers host Coventry City on October 16 due to his quarantine requirement.

Chile have three more World Cup qualifiers in November to finish the year, before five more in 2022.

They are currently eighth in the 10-team standings at the halfway stage and face an uphill task in the bid to reach Qatar 2022.

Speaking earlier this month, Brereton said of his inability to join up with the Chile squad: “I have always said that I want to play for the club and my country. Chile is my country and I can’t wait to go and help them in the qualifiers.

“I was devastated not to go, but I understood the reasons . Now I am happy that an agreement has been reached to go in October.”
