Shaw ‘awake and alert’ following head injury against Spain

"They gave me an opportunity to play in the Premier League and built a great platform for me to go and perform at the World Cup, so I thank them a lot". The left-back scored in our opening game of the campaign and has been the most consistent player on the pitch.

Ben Chilwell and Demarai Gray are celebrating their first senior England call-ups as Luke Shaw prepares to return Manchester United having sustained concussion against Spain.

Shaw superbly set up Marcus Rashford's opener on his first England start since September 2015 - an appearance that came just a week before he suffered a ugly double leg-break in a Champions League tie.

England defender Luke Shaw alleviated concerns about his health after receiving lengthy treatment on the field following a collision during a game against Spain on Saturday.

The Football Association said it is not as serious as it looked, but the shock naturally took the sting out of the second half.

He also found time, in the hospital, to have a back-and-forth with Carvajal.

Upon receiving the message, Shaw responded himself, acknowledging there was no malicious intent from Carvajal and that it was just a collision caused by a loose ball.

Despite the incident being accidental, Carvajal felt guilty and was unable to check on his opponent's wellbeing following the game.

On Shaw's overall display as he won a first worldwide cap for 18 months, the England manager added: "It's a great contribution for the goal and it's a big thing".

Mauricio Pochettino's Spurs side have been linked with Shaw for numerous transfer windows, and The Sun claim that Tottenham still want the Manchester United defender.
