What Chelsea’s Reece James was asked by England staff before he arrived to meet Gareth Southgate

Reece James has been seen arriving at St George’s Park ahead of England’s upcoming internationals.

The Chelsea defender has been named in Gareth Southgate’s squad despite being handed a two match ban by UEFA after his red card in the Nations League defeat to Denmark last month.

UEFA chiefs ruled the full-back used “abusive language” at Spanish referee Jesus Gil Manzano and was sent off after the final whistle.

James will miss both Nations League games against Belgium and Iceland, but could feature in the friendly with the Republic of Ireland on Thursday.

And ahead of the game, the Chelsea right-back could be spotted arriving at the camp where he was greeted by Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate.

On a video posted on England’s YouTube channel, James can be seen leaving a car and walking into the training complex, where he is greeted by a staff member, who reminds him of the coronavirus protocols upon entry: “Same as normal,” before asking him: “Have you got your passport?”

James has recently established himself in Chelsea’s first team after winning back his place from Cesar Azpilicueta.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard recently backed the defender for a long and fruitful career at Stamford Bridge.

“His progress is phenomenal. When he played at Wigan in the Championship, I watched him closely and tried to take him to Derby in that January window and it didn’t happen,” said Lampard.
