Reece James’ rise to prominence means he’s now set to be a starter for England just weeks after winning the Champions League with Chelsea.
He and the other Chelsea lads have had to mix with the defeated opposition – and now teammates – from Man City. Asked in today’s press conference how they dealt with it, he answered honestly “we had to be humble,” – but even lovely Reece couldn’t resist a sneaky grin.
They all seem to be getting on great though, and combining forces for England can only be a good thing for the national team, given the incredible quality on both sides of the divide.
