England made unwanted history as Reece James and Harry Maguire were sent off during the Three Lions’ Nations League loss against Denmark.

Disciplinary problems continue to plague Gareth Southgate’s England, who have now received three red cards in a single calendar year for the first time ever, per Opta.

Kyle Walker was sent off during England’s 1-0 Nations League victory over Iceland in September.

Maguire was the first player to be given his marching orders by referee Jesus Gil in Wednesday’s 1-0 Group A2 defeat at Wembley, where the England and Manchester United defender accrued two rash bookings by the 31-minute mark.

Denmark star Christian Eriksen converted a penalty four minutes later, which proved the match-winner.

England’s woes were compounded after full debutant and Chelsea full-back James was dismissed for dissent following the final whistle.

With the red card, James became the first player to be sent off on his first international start for England.
