M/DChelsea
OUT
November 9, 2022
James (knee) will not be in England's squad for the World Cup, he revealed via Instagram. "Good luck to the boys. I'll be back soon."
ANALYSIS
As seen in prior updates, James was in a race to be fit in the next couple weeks, as Graham Potter never gave an official timeline and he wasn't even training with the ball. It makes sense because as of now, it doesn't seem like he'll be ready to take part before the end of group stages. It's a blow for James, who is at least young and expected to make future World Cup squads.
