Reece James says that his ambition and dream is to get a call up for the England national team. The Chelsea full-back, who is on loan at Wigan, has had a tremendous campaign. It is quite remarkable that a player who did not feature in a senior match prior to the switch to the DW Stadium is now on the verge of a potential call-up to international action. This is largely due to a still a campaign in which James has been able to feature in every game of the campaign. Crucially, he has been able to come up with stellar performances in each of these matches.
It is not a surprise that James was named in the team of the Championship 2018-19 season. James has been with the England squad for the under 20 set up, and the 19-year-old was named as the academy player of the season at Chelsea last year. Now, he has set his sights on achieving the full glory of featuring for England, while he could be one of the several players competing for a position at Chelsea next season. Due to the transfer ban imposed on Chelsea, the Blues are unlikely to let many of the young players go out on loan.
“James was recently featured in the England squad over the recent international break and it is understood that Southgate is seriously monitoring the players progress.“It’s a dream to go on and achieve that. Who wouldn’t want to go on and play for your country?Also going back to Chelsea, it’s where I’ve been and where I want to play. But I have enjoyed this experience, being on loan. I try my best every week to “achieve what I want. It’s all about having a good career and fulfilling my potential,” said James.
