Reece James reveals Jude Bellingham is still ‘stinging and hitting me’ – .


England defender Reece James has revealed he needs to refrain from hitting Jude Bellingham.

The Chelsea right-back took the 17-year-old under his wing in the Three Lions side for Euro 2020 and the pair succeeded.

James is four years older than Bellingham and has learned to keep his cool.

“He is very young but a very good footballer, I take care of him,” James said on the Lion’s Den YouTube page.

“He’s still so young but he has a lot to learn so I try to help him where I can.

“He always pushes me and hits me, he’s so stupid and I’m going to turn around and come so close to touching him but I never get out of it.” “

James played Scotland on Friday, fulfilling a childhood dream of representing his country at a major tournament.

He added: “It was obviously a moment I dreamed of as a kid, to watch England in tournaments grow up and then go out to Wembley with fans there to play my first game in a major tournament. .

“My first tournament, my first game. I was nervous before, but once the game started I was in the zone and couldn’t wait to go.

England’s average age is the third lowest in the tournament at just under 25, but James doesn’t think that’s a problem.

“Everyone says we’re such a young team but everyone this season has played quite a few minutes, it’s not like we’re young players who haven’t played,” added James.

“We all played a lot, some won trophies and some did really well.

“The longer we stay here in the competition, the stronger we will become as a team. “
