Chelsea to request Reece James is left out of England squad

Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel has revealed the club will request that Reece James is omitted from the England squad for upcoming friendlies against Switzerland and Ivory Coast.

The wing-back only recently made his comeback from a hamstring tear suffered at the end of 2021, before injuring a muscle injury in his other leg and being sidelined again for a number of weeks.

However, having missed his club’s last two matches, James was still included in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the March international break when it was announced on Thursday.

The defender had returned to individual training in midweek, and Tuchel suggested he was in with a chance of facing Middlesbrough in Saturday’s FA Cup quarter-final.
