Chelsea defender, Reece James is the latest player to withdraw from the England Squad having suffered another setback due to injury.
The English Football Association on Saturday reported that the withdrawal is due to an ongoing issue that requires assessment.
As a result, James will not be participating in England’s Euro 2024 qualifier against Ukraine at Wembley, despite making a brief appearance in the team’s 2-1 win over Italy on Thursday.
This latest setback comes after James was ruled out of the World Cup in Qatar due to a knee injury.
Although he returned to Chelsea action in February after a setback in December, his fitness remains a concern.
England manager Gareth Southgate has decided not to call up a replacement for James, and instead, Kieran Trippier or Kyle Walker are likely to start in his place against Ukraine.
It remains to be seen whether James will be fit enough for Chelsea’s upcoming Premier League match against Aston Villa on April 1, as he has only featured in 12 league matches for his club this season.
