Reece James has returned early from international duty with England ‘for assessment on an ongoing issue’ according to the FA.
The Chelsea full-back has been a standout player for the Blues in a very disappointing season but has now been handed another injury setback.
The English player has had a very unfortunate season so far missing almost half of his club games this season, much to the disappointment of Graham Potter who has struggled without him.
The 23-year-old is reportedly suffering from a hamstring injury with the FA confirming in s statement that he will not feature in the European qualifier against Ukraine.
“Reece James has withdrawn from the England squad and will not feature against Ukraine on Sunday.” The statement read.
Chelsea fans will be hoping that this withdrawal from the England team is only precautionary as he will be a crucial player for Chelsea for the remainder of the season.
