Manchester United have been without the talented Luke Shaw for the majority of the season due to a disastrous leg injury that he suffered earlier in the season. The young man broke his leg in two places, all-but ending his campaign.
However in recent weeks Shaw has stepped up his comeback from injury, and he could well get on the pitch for Manchester United before the season draws to a close.
According to The Sun, a leaked image of Roy Hodgson’s 30-man preliminary squad for the European Championships has appeared – and Luke Shaw has been given the nod ahead of Danny Rose.
If true, this would be a huge morale boost for Shaw. He would have thought his chances of being included would’ve been next-to-none, but this is a real show of faith in the young man.
You just wonder as to whether this call-up is slightly too soon. As we mentioned, he hasn’t played a minute of football in over six months, so it would be a huge risk to take if he is thrown straight in at the deep end.
