Luke Shaw’s Euro 2020 final goal was a special moment.

And while it did not go onto decide the game as England fans would have hoped, the left-back did Manchester United proud.

His teammates were thrilled for him and posted messages of support.

Bruno Fernandes and Donny van de Beek both posted to Instagram to commend Shaw for his momentous goal.

The duo’s praise for Shaw shows the admiration in which the Manchester United defender is held.

His goal felt like a really special moment, and sadly England’s defeat means it will not go down in legend as it could have done if the Three Lions held on.

 

That should not take away from Shaw’s tournament heroics.

The United defender was arguably the best left-back at Euro 2020, performing outstandingly in attack and defence.

In the final he was one of England’s best players on the pitch for all 120 minutes and will now get a well earned break.

It won’t be too long before Shaw is due back for Manchester United’s pre-season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could look to easy him back in, Alex Telles is available, but the form he is playing in over the past 12 months, it is going to be impossible to keep Shaw out for long.
