Luke Shaw’s minor injury could have major effect on his World Cup hopes


Manchester Evening News reporter Samuel Luckhurst has asked more questions than he answered about Manchester United’s Luke Shaw in his latest report.

The left-back missed the last few squads through injury and was sidelined following Eric Ten Haag’s 4-0 loss to Brentford in favor of new signing Tyrell Malaysia.

and Luckhurst thinks The manager expected Shaw to be fit for United’s final game against Real Sociedad which could be his chance to get minutes after three games in eight days in Malaysia.

But according to the reporter, “the 27-year-old could have started the game against Real Sociedad but did not attend United’s public training session the day before the Europa League defeat.

“Shaw’s injury is considered minor, with Manchester United boss Eric Ten Haag saying the left-back has a ‘small complaint’.

“Ten Haig wants to include Shaw in Leicester’s 20-man squad, but the defender is still struggling with injury and United have had to appoint two goalkeepers from the bench.”

Luckhurst hints at Shaw’s lead here, at least he might be a bit shaky.

The Englishman missed the end of last season as he underwent surgery to remove pins from his legs, which were fitted with broken legs, which lasted in the 2015 Champions League draw with PSV Eindhoven .

Ironically, that injury happened seven years ago on the day of United’s next game against Tiraspol Sheriff, another European away match.

Luckhurst further noted: “The timing of Shaw’s absence could affect his chances of being selected for the England squad, with manager Gareth Southgate due to announce his appearance in this Nations League tie on Thursday. this month with Italy and Germany. political party.”

The former Southampton man seems unlikely to advance given his lack of playing time lately.

With fewer chances by November, it seems more likely that Malaysia will be the main force in Qatar, although they will usually have to play at left-back behind ex-Manchester United player Daley Blind or left-back. Dutch. And as the Dutchman’s confidence grows with every game, Shaw’s inability to get fit when the opportunity presents itself could be a ‘sliding door’ moment for his future career.
