Manchester United defender Luke Shaw could make a shock comeback in time for England’s Euro 2016 campaign, report the Daily Mail.
The reports claims that Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson has not yet closed the door on the prospect of seeing the 20-year old line up at this summer’s showpiece in France.
Cruelly struck down with a horrific double leg break during the Red Devils’ Champions League clash with PSV, the left-back was not played since September.
‘We are still monitoring Luke Shaw, he is making good progress’, revealed the 68-year old, speaking in a workshop ahead of the finals in Paris.
After struggling to justify his £27m price tag following his move from Southampton last year, the youngster was beginning to show his top form for both club and country before injury.
Another regular under the former Inter Milan and Liverpool coach is Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere, who is yet to play this season after undergoing ankle surgery in the summer.
The 23-year old is reportedly nearing a return and was in his national manager’s mind despite a prolonged layoff.
‘We are monitoring Jack Wilshere, who is making very good progress.’
‘But we have to accept in March we won’t have those players, but hopefully in May, when I have to make a decision, they will be available for selection.’
The Gunners star has largely been deployed as a deep-lying playmaker for England under Hodgson, emerging as one of his key players when fit.
