James withdraws from England squad


England's defender Kyle Walker (L) and England's defender Reece James attend a team training session at St George's Park in Burton-on-Trent, central England, on March 21, 2023 ahead of of their UEFA EURO 2024 qualifier football match against Italy.

Chelsea defender Reece James will miss England’s Euro 2024 qualifier against Ukraine at Wembley on Sunday through injury.

The 23-year-old has returned to the Premier League club for what the Football Association says is “assessment of an ongoing issue”.

James came on for Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka after 85 minutes of Thursday’s 2-1 win over Italy in Naples.

Manager Gareth Southgate has decided not to call up any replacements.

James missed last year’s World Cup with a knee injury and picked up another knee problem in December which kept him out for another month.

The remainder of the England squad, including the suspended Luke Shaw, will continue their preparations at the Tottenham Hotspur training ground on Saturday.
