Reece James and his sister breaks iconic record in English football

Reece James and his sister Lauren James have now set a new record as the first brother and sister to play International football for England.

The James siblings broke this record last year when Lauren made an appearance for England women in November.

The 19-year-old plays as a striker for Manchester united ladies in the Barclays FA Women Super League and has maintained a fairly decent form.

At 13 she joined Arsenal, and because of her experience with playing with her brothers was encouraged to train with the boys’ academy team.

Two years later, the prolific forward made her first team debut for the Gunners women’s team. She created history in the process becoming the youngest player in Arsenal’s history male or female to make an appearance for the club.

In 2017, she moved to the newly reformed Manchester United women’s team to take on a new challenge and to seek regular first team football.

Reece earned his first national team cap against Wales last October, while a month later Lauren received a senior national team call-up.

And now they have made history as the first and only brother and sister to play International football for England.
