Luke Shaw is an injury doubt to play for England on Tuesday

England handed new injury blow with the defender.

England’s Luke Shaw is a doubt to play against Slovenia in their final Euro 2024 group stage match, despite previous believes this fixture would mark his return to the national team from injury.

The Red Devils player is the only natural left-back in England’s team for the competition, but it was a gamble to be part of the roster given he has not been on the pitch since February due to a muscle problem. In his position, Kieran Trippier has started at left-back for the Three Lions 1st 2 group matches.

Southgate wanted to give Manchester United defender time on the pitch vs. Slovenia on Tuesday, but now that seems in serious doubt.

It was believed that Luke would train yesterday along with the other footballers who did not play in their 1-1 draw with Denmark. However, Shaw instead trained on his own indoors, suggesting that he is still not ready.
