Wigan Athletic old-boy labelled 'best in the world'
James is currently vying with Kyle Walker and Kieron Trippier for an England start at the Euros in his preferred position, with Trent Alexander-Arnold having dropped out of the reckoning through injury.
Nevin, though, says there's no decision to make - and expects the 21-year-old to cement his growing reputation on the big stage over the next month.
Speaking to Alex Goldberg, Nevin said: “I wouldn’t take any player above Reece James in his position in the world. I wouldn’t take anyone.
“I think he’s that amazing at defending, power, reading the game and as we know, his crossing ability is out of this world.”
