According to England boss Gareth Southgate, Chelsea right-back Reece James had an incredible debut for England in the 1-0 defeat to Denmark on Wednesday night.

Southgate also revealed James has to learn to control his emotions after the right-back was shown a record for dissent after the game.

Southgate said: “That’s a lesson he’s got to learn [keeping his calm as he was sent off after the game]. He had an incredible debut, he’s impressed me all week.

“Until that moment he’d shown great maturity. It’s ended up something that shouldn’t have happened but for the overall week he’s made a positive impression.”
