Reece James explains England red card after Man of the Match performance

Chelsea right back Reece James was the Man of the Match choice for many people last night, including Matt Law of The Telegraph.

England lost 1-0 to Denmark and James was making his first senior start for his country.

Harry Maguire single handily lost them the match with an awful performance and an awful first touch leading him to making a rash challenge and subsequently getting booked twice in the first half and sent to the changing rooms.

James continued to play very well throughout and was England’s best player.

You could see his natural frustration at the end of the game and he got sent off for going up to the Referee and showing dissent.

Not a wise move from James, but he is still learning, and it was great to see his passion and desire.

James has explained that the game for him was ‘full of emotion, desire, and hunger’, which is clearly not an excuse as he holds his hands up and takes ‘full responsibility’, but it does explain his over-reaction….
