For the past few seasons, Luke Shaw’s career has been plagued by injuries and a lack of form, and he has since lost out his place in the England squad.

However, the 25-year-old has been in amazing form this season, and he has been hailed by many as the best left-back in the Premier League, this current campaign.

Manchester United legend Gary Neville has heaped praise on Luke Shaw following his performance against Manchester City on Sunday, and he believes it’s time for Shaw to become the main man for England at this summer’s European Championship.

Gary Neville said on the Gary Neville Podcast for Sky Sports: “He has been outstanding this season for United.

“A Luke Shaw that is fit, a Luke Shaw that is physically good and a Luke Shaw that is confident is the best left-back in the country in my opinion.

“He is physically right, he is mentally right and he is clear of injury, so everything is right for Luke Shaw. Because he is an amazing talent, he is a brilliant talent.”
