Ashley Cole trusts Manchester United’s Luke Shaw is driving in the competition to be England’s best option left-back for the European Championship this mid year. Luke Shaw has been amazing for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team so far this season and has been compensated with his first England call-up since 2018 September.
The Manchester United left-back is seeking a spot along side Chelsea’s Chilwellin Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka in Gareth Southgate’s side.
Shaw conveyed another noteworthy showcase in England’s 2-0 triumph over Albania on Sunday as he gave the cross to Harry Kane’s initial goal. Furthermore, Cole, who was capped multiple times (107) by England, trusts Shaw is in front of both Chilwell and Saka. ‘I believe it’s a tight one between Shaw who I believe is simply pipping it at the moment,’ Cole told ITV.
‘I think he is playing all the more reliably for Manchester United, where as Chilwell… sometimes he plays [for Chelsea] and a few days he doesn’t. ‘I think right now Shaw is ahead of the pack. ‘Be that as it may, who can say for sure? Going into the last rounds of the Premier League season, who can hold their nerve and keep the consistency before the crew gets declared.’
Roy Keane likewise concurred with Cole’s decision. ‘This year he’s been extraordinary,’ said Keane. ‘I know he’s had some issues under Mourinho, clearly, however he’s been steady this year. ‘Going ahead yet protectively I think he has the edge over other defenders in the squad. ‘He’s improved that, nobody has truly improved more than him this season one versus one.’
