Gareth Southgate on why he axed Luke Shaw from England squad

16 May 2019, 20:00

England boss Gareth Southgate has explained his decision to leave Manchester United defender Luke Shaw out of his 27-man squad for June’s clash with the Netherlands. 

Shaw, who was voted as United's Player of the Year earlier this week, has enjoyed a strong campaign with the Red Devils despite missing out on a top-four finish. 

Asked if it was a difficult decision to leave Shaw out, Southgate told reporters: "No. I think Ben Chilwell and Danny Rose have been excellent.

So at the moment they’re ahead [of Shaw], and they’ve played particularly well for us. They’ve been completely committed to the England shirt and really given everything for the England shirt over the last period of time.

They’re two very good players so there’s high competition for places in lots of positions, but that one in particular we’re blessed with really good options." 

Injured Tottenham duo of Harry Kane and Harry Winks have been included in the squad despite nursing injuries.
