James Recce is an English professional footballer who plays as a right-back for Premier League club Chelsea and the England national team.
Reece James is a graduate of our development center program and has been training with us since the age of six.
A right-footed player, his athleticism and excellent crossing ability have helped him excel at full-back and wing-back, all the way through our Academy sides and now with the first team.
James was a key part of the England Under-17 side that triumphed at the Toulon Tournament in the summer of 2017. There he impressed to such an extent he was named in the team of the competition.
He traveled to the European Under-19 Championship the same year, before stepping up to the Under-21 level in October 2019. Almost exactly a year later received his first call-up to the England senior squad.
His debut for the Three Lions soon followed, on 8 October 2020, when he came on as a substitute in the second half of a 3-0 win over Wales at Wembley Stadium
