Gareth Southgate explains why he didn’t include Luke Shaw in the England squad

Earlier the England squad for the upcoming UEFA Nations League games have been announced. Manchester United defender Luke Shaw was left out from the squad and the head coach Gareth Southgate gave his explanation.

Southgate said he picked left backs Ben Chilwell and Danny Rose over Luke Shaw for England’s Nations League squad because they “give everything for the shirt”.

“I think Ben Chilwell and Danny Rose have been excellent. At the moment they’re ahead [in the pecking order] and have played particularly well,” said Southgate, when justifying his decision.

“They’ve given everything for the England shirt.”
