Following his heroics in England’s hammering of Ukraine in the quarter-finals of Euro 2020, Luke Shaw has been hailed as one of the world’s best left-backs.
Shaw has come in from the international cold over this summer’s tournament, starting all but one of the Three Lions' during the competition so far.
He has been one of England’s most impressive players so far, also providing the assists for Harry Maguire’s header and Harry Kane’s second goal against Ukraine on Saturday.
The 25-year-old’s performances at the Championships have followed on from what was arguably his best season in a Manchester United shirt.
After being routinely called out by former manager Jose Mourinho, Shaw has flourished under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
He has beaten off the threat of Alex Telles to cement himself as United’s first choice left-back, making 47 appearances in all competitions last season.
His displays for United saw him crowned as United’s Players’ Player of the Year in the campaign just gone.

Former Tottenham midfielder Jamie O’Hara though believes that Shaw deserves to not just be lauded as one of the Red Devils’ best players, but as one of the best in the world in his position.
“He had a great season at Manchester United and he looked fit. He had a terrible injury, a really bad injury and to come back from that is not easy,” O’Hara told talkSPORT.
“Looked like he was carrying a little bit of weight and Mourinho wasn’t really having him but this season he’s been outstanding.
“He’s stayed fit, but his performances, you look at it and you have to go at the moment, based on form and the way he’s playing, he’s one of the best left-backs in the world.”
Shaw will be hoping to keep his place in England’s starting line-up for Wednesday’s semi-final with Denmark at Wembley, with Gareth Southgate’s side looking to reach their first major final since 1966.
