According to Matt Law of The Telegraph, England boss Gareth Southgate is set to start Chelsea right-back Reece James against Scotland on Friday night.

James will take the place of Manchester City right-back Kyle Walker in England’s starting XI.

Having beaten Croatia in England’s first game of the European Championships, Southgate wants his team to clinch qualification from the group stages by beating Scotland at Wembley.

Southgate believes starting James ahead of Walker will give England more attacking threat in wide areas.
