According to West Ham midfielder and England international Declan Rice, Chelsea right-back Reece James looked like a seasoned international veteran in his full England debut against Denmark on Wednesday night.
“Reece James looked like he’d been out here for 30-40 caps tonight,” Rice said to BBC’s 5Live post-match.
“I’ve been with him since the Under-8s and I know he’s capable of that.
“He’s a fantastic young player and gives us another option going forward and I don’t think that sending off should affect how positively we look at his performance.
“Until [Maguire’s] sending off happened I thought we were playing really well and using the ball really well. Reece James and Mason Mount were creating some great chances for us but we just couldn’t put the ball in the back of the net.”
