Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw played with broken ribs against Ukraine, Denmark, and Italy at Euro 2020 according to reports. The defender was a standout performer for the Three Lions in the tournament as he scored 1 goal and provided 3 assists in 6 games.
The report also claims that the 26-year-old sustained the injury during the tournament’s last 16 game against rivals Germany.
Manchester United are awaiting the player’s return from the summer break so they can ascertain the extent of the damage.
The English defender has struggled with fitness issues and injury setbacks throughout his career but seems to have revived in recent times and impressed in England’s journey to the Euro 2020 final, which was their first major tournament final in 55 years.
It can be recalled that he opened the scoring for Gareth Southgate’s men in the Euro 2020 final against Italy at Wembley on July 11 after just two minutes as he smashed in a cross from Kieran Tippier.
He provided 2 assists in the 4 nil win over Ukraine in the quarter-final of the tournament. His first assist of the tournament came in the 2 nil defeat of Germany as he provided a pass for Raheem Sterling to put England 1 goal up in the 75th minute.
