To get well in time for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Reece James must race against the clock.
Reece James, a defender for Chelsea, appeared concerned when he spoke to fans on YouTube about the severity of a recent injury that would prevent him from competing in this year’s World Cup in Qatar.
The 22-year-old would often be a lock for Gareth Southgate after solidifying himself as one of Europe’s best right-backs over the previous several years, but he faces a race against time to be fit for the start of the tournament.
James has started both of England’s most recent games, seemingly as a sign of Southgate’s confidence, but it now appears like he might not be able to play in the World Cup at all given his most recent setback.
He admitted in a YouTube video that a surgeon had cautioned him about a potential two-month absence, but he swore that he would do everything in his power to get back in shape before the tournament started in mid-November.
James started by stating that When he was hurt last week during a tackle against AC Milan, he spent an extra day in Milan and assumed it might simply be a minor ache. However, he later realized it wasn’t that awful.
James recalls seeing a doctor a day or two later. He would be out of commission for around two months, the surgeon informed him. Of course, it’s upsetting, and you are aware that the World Cup is just a month away.
Since the beginning of the current season, James has contributed two goals and two assists for Chelsea. Before getting hurt against AC Milan, James had started every week for the Blues.
Though his chances of joining the squad currently appear slim, it is unknown whether he will be able to mount a miracle recovery in time for the World Cup.
Trent Alexander-Arnold, who missed the last month’s Nations League games against Italy and Germany, may perhaps be on his way back to the England team.
