Chelsea and England full-back Reece James has decided not to have surgery on a knee injury picked up against AC Milan after seeing a specialist in London on Saturday.

The 22-year-old is expected to be England’s first-choice right-back at the upcoming World Cup but now faces two months of recovery, leaving England manager Gareth Southgate with a decision to make.

James’ decision to not have surgery on the serious knee ligament injury means he is expected to face a two month recovery period, according to The Athletic.

His recovery period could be shortened with long-term return dates depending on how James responds to his intense rehabilitation plan, but Chelsea’s academy star faces the realistic prospect of missing the World Cup.
