The Footballer star shed light on his position as a right-wing back.
English professional footballer, Reece James, has revealed his best goal moment as a Chelsea player.
Chelsea’s first-team defender, Reece James has shed light on his position as a right-wing back which he plays for both club and country.
James is thought to be one of the Premier League’s top right-wing backs. The moment Thomas Tuchel arrived at Chelsea in January 2021, the Englishman took advantage of that circumstance.

The defender was speaking in an interview that was posted on the Chelsea Football Club’s official website. According to James, football has evolved beyond when a fullback just has to stick with his position as a fullback.
I know my ability and how well I can strike a ball. Whenever I get the opportunity, I always try and score and give myself the best chance of scoring or getting an assist. Full-backs were just full-backs before, but now they’re trying to use them as an extra player.
We have space there and sometimes it works in your favour. It’s great when you get high up the pitch and attack but sometimes the game is more difficult and you can’t do that because you’re defending more. In football, anything can happen and counter-attacks happen every game, so you have always got to remain switched on and not go to sleep.
The young player also discussed the best goal he has ever scored for Chelsea since joining the team’s first team.
Probably the one in the 4-4 draw with Ajax felt the best. It was my first Champions League goal and that game was so crazy. We were down 4-1 and if we had said at that point that we were going to come back and draw, I think we would have been written off. On top of that, it was my first goal in Europe and I was so young as well. It’s electric when you celebrate goals like that – you score and then you can see the joy and excitement from the fans as well. It’s a great feeling.
