Chelsea defender James Who was not part of the Three Lions due to injury. Couldn’t help but poke fun at Tony’s post by commenting. If I say, I’m in big trouble. That was quoted by former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho in 2014. The 22-year-old wasn’t the only one to comment on the matter with Roma striker Tammy Abraham. Which was also overlooked, responded with a dead man emoji.
As for James, he is clearly unhappy with Gareth Southgate‘s squad selection after he had to watch the World Cup at home due to concerns about his fitness. James hopes he will be fit enough to play in at least the knockout stages, but Southgate doesn’t see that, opting for Trent Alexander-Arnold, Kyle Woah. Lekker and Kieran Trippier were instead at England’s right-back and James’ social media activity appeared to indicate he was still unhappy with Southgate’s decision.
On Saturday, he liked a tweet that quoted Paul Merson in his Daily Star column, in which he criticized Southgate for not including James. The tweet was posted by one Chelsea fan: “Paul Merson: ‘I just find it weird that Gareth Southgate is willing to take a risk with Calvin Filli. Paps and Kyle Walker, but not Reece James? If it’s Harry Kane, he’ll go – what’s the difference?’ ‘If it’s Harry Kane, they’ll say, ‘Yes, we’ll take him and use him after the group stage’. Take one of our best players with you. I just don’t get it, Reece James is as important as Harry Kane.’”
