Reece James: ‘England red card will make me stronger’
Reece James remains ‘proud’ of his full England debut despite being shown a red card after the full time whistle.
The sending off capped a difficult evening for England. Three days on from impressively coming back to beat Belgium, Christian Eriksen fired home a controversially-awarded penalty to seal a 1-0 victory in front of empty stands at Wembley.
Frustration boiled over after the final whistle as Chelsea star James was sent off for dissent.
The 20-year-old took ‘full responsibility’ for his actions, but believes the incident will help make him stronger.
Writing on Instagram, he said: “Tonight’s game was full of emotion, desire and hunger. Proud to have made my full senior debut in such a testing game.
“I take full responsibility for the red card after the final whistle. Moments like this will make me stronger, I’ll continue to put in 100% day in day out to keep improving!”

Reece James has indeed been sent off for “foul and abusive language”. A blow because he was excellent tonight.
There’s some suggestion that Reece James has been sent off after the full-time whistle. I’ll let you know when we’ve got more.
FULL-TIME | England 0-1 Denmark |
90+1 mins: How’s this stayed out!
Conor Coady gets on the end of Kane’s cross and thinks he’s found the far corner but it’s brilliantly headed away by Kjaer.
90 mins: There’ll be three added minutes…
85 mins: England have grown very frustrated with a couple of decisions in the last few minutes and Jordan Henderson goes into the book for his protests.
78 mins: Decent free-kick effort from Reece James that was probably going over before Schmeichel helps it on its way.
76 mins: Declan Rice makes way after a decent performance and Jordan Henderson is sent on.

It is a surprise to see both Kalvin Phillips and Declan Rice remaining on following those changes. Calvert-Lewin has made a fine start to life as an England international but will always struggle to challenge Kane for his place in the starting line up.
The Everton striker’s best chance of getting into the starting XI on a regular basis is to prove he can play with Kane, now would be a good time to do just that.
73 mins: At last. Jadon Sancho and Dominic Calvert-Lewin are on for Marcus Rashford and Mason Mount.
72 mins: Still no changes from Gareth Southgate…
66 mins: What a save!
Absolutely brilliant from Kasper Schmiechel. Declan Rice heads back across goal from the corner and Mason Mount reacts sharply to nod what he thinks is England’s leveller but the Dane pulls off a stunning one-handed save.
61 mins: England have offered almost nothing since the break. Changes must be coming, you’d think.
55 mins: Denmark are bossing possession at the moment but England have looked pretty secure. Jordan Pickford’s not really had a save to make, bar the penalty which he had no chance with.
50 mins: No changes from England at the break in terms of shape or personnel but Sancho is now imminent.
We are back underway…
Gareth Southgate’s having the kind of conversation with Jadon Sancho that suggests he could be on shortly.
Jack Rosser for Standard Sport
England responded well to going a goal behind and, if they can keep things tight, it will be interesting to see how Southgate approaches the second half.
There has been a threat down the right through James and Mount but Kane is struggling to make an impact through the middle. He’s been caught on his heels by some of the crosses and has to improve when it comes to holding the play up and bringing others in.
