Luke Shaw has been struggling since the early part of the year 2024 to regain his full fitness. The Manchester United player was a doubt for England’s Euro 2024 squad. However, with not major number of options available for the Three Lions leading into the European tournament, they had to name him in their final squad of players.

England’s manager, Gareth Southgate, has also been quite unsure about Shaw’s selection when asked something about it during his press conferences. It remains to be seen if the Red Devils player will be able to make it to England’s opening match for the Euros.
