Shaw to return to Manchester United as England call up Leicester pair

Justin GreeneSep 10, 2018

After the break, Luke Shaw departed the pitch on a stretcher after a terrible collision with Dani Carvajal.

Following the match, England had tweeted from their official account: "Luke is awake and alert, having been assessed by our doctor and given an X-ray".

"At the time they were thinking about flying me back and, if I had flown back, then I would have probably lost my leg because of the blood clots and stuff in the leg".

England have conceded six goals in their last three games in all competitions and Gareth Southgate will feel Spain were allowed back into the contest far too easily, particularly after Harry Maguire played Rodrigo onside for their second.

"He's sat up in the dressing room". He's a player that in this period we definitely wanted to invest time in, so that's why we started him.

Southgate said: "He's got a tremendous mentality, he's got great talent and we think he's got everything to go on and be a top player".

Eight weeks after their memorable World Cup run was ended by Croatia in the semi-finals, the optimism sweeping England looked justified as Marcus Rashford scored a superb early opener. "It was a nasty looking fall and collision".

"For certain, we won't take any chances with his health but the good news is he is awake, talking and seems reasonably fine".

On Sunday there were no plans to send Shaw back to his club early, as would've been the case had the head injury been more severe, although it would appear unlikely he will be risked against Switzerland on Tuesday in England's friendly at Leicester City's King Power Stadium.

Shaw has only played seven minutes of global football in the three years since as he has struggled to hold down a place in the United team until the start of this season.

Chilwell and Gray will not travel out to Latvia with the England Under-21s squad on Monday and will join Southgate's senior squad for the first time.

The Manchester United fullback took to twitter to thank all those who showed support and concern while he was still unconscious, saying, "Thank you for all the love and support".
