Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw played through the agony of broken ribs to help England to the finals of the Euros this summer.
According to the Telegraph, the 26-year-old suffered the injury in the Round of 16 ties against Germany with the player completing the entire 90 minutes to help the Three Lions win the game.
The Southampton academy graduate went on to feature against Ukraine, Denmark and was England’s scorer in the final vs Italy.
Shaw played every minute of those matches except the one against Ukraine, with the Red Devils ace only substituted after he’d crafted two assists to help Gareth Southgate’s side to a 4-0 lead.
The Telegraph insists that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the United staff would’ve preferred for Shaw to return to Carrington for scans immediately, but the ace certainly earned the right to go on holiday first.
