Chelsea defender Reece James was sent off after England’s Nations League defeat to Denmark over an altercation with the referee.

James appeared angry at referee Jesus Gil Manzano after Gareth Southgate’s side suffered a 1-0 defeat to Denmark at Wembley on Wednesday night.

The Blues star, making his full international debut, was one of England’s best players throughout the match but was shown a straight red card after the final whistle for dissent.

Jamie Redknapp told Sky Sports: ‘I saw Reece James getting very emotional with the referee.

‘You could see Jordan Henderson trying to pull him away from the ref because you know in that moment when one of your teammate’s has lost his head a little bit.

‘It’s a massive shame because I thought he was sensational today. His emotions just got the better of him.

‘I’m not trying to make excuses but the referee was useless.’

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire was sent off as England slipped to a 1-0 defeat at Wembley.

Southgate’s side are now third in their Nations League group, with only the winners progressing to the finals in 2021.

On Chelsea defender James, West Ham and England star Declan Rice said: ‘Reece James looked like he’d been out here for 30-40 caps tonight.

‘I’ve been with him since under-8s and I know he’s capable of that. He’s a fantastic young player.

‘I don’t think that sending off should affect how positively we look at his performance.’

On England’s performance, Rice added: ‘Until the [Maguire] sending off happened I thought we were playing really well and using the ball really well.

‘Reece James and Mason Mount were creating some great chances for us but we just couldn’t put the ball in the back of the net.’
