Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw is set to receive his first England call-up in nearly two years.

The Englishman’s last involvement in national team duties was back in September 2019, when when he got injured in an encounter with Spain, and before then, he’d been absent due to recurring injury problems.

However, there’s been an improvement in fortunes for Shaw, who has been a consistent part of Olé Gunnar Solskjaer’s Man United this season, despite the summer arrival of Alex Telles from FC Porto.

Shaw has played most of United’s matches this season, putting in solid performances in each game, and it seems England manager, Gareth Southgate has been impressed with him.

According to Daily Star, Southgate is set to name Shaw as one of the players he’ll invite for England’s upcoming matches in November.

The Three Lions are expected to play three matches in a few days, including a friendly against the Republic of Ireland, and Nations League games against Belgium and Iceland.

If the report is true, it is a very good one for Shaw and United, as it would reflect just how good and well the team is doing at the moment.
