Manchester United defender Luke Shaw is reportedly carrying a tendon injury in his wrist at the ongoing Euro 2020 tournament. This is according to the publication from the stables of the Manchester Evening News (MEN) which revealed that the injury was not serious enough to keep him out of the 23-man squad for the Euro 2020 tournament opener with World Cup finalists Croatia at the weekend.

Shaw has been carrying the injury for the past few weeks and it has been revealed that the player will manage the injury through the Euro 2020 tournament rather than return to Manchester. He was one of the best fullbacks in the Premier League last season and was rightly named in the squad for the Euro 2020 currently ongoing in several cities across the European continent.

A lot of the England fans were surprised when manager Gareth Southgate went for an odd left-back option ahead of Manchester United player Luke Shaw and his Chelsea counterpart Ben Chilwell in the Three Lions’ opening game of the Euro 2020 tournament against Croatia. Southgate decided to start Atletico Madrid right-back Kieran Trippier at left-back, while Manchester United player Shaw was left on the bench for the whole duration of the Croatia game. Chelsea player Chilwell was one of the three players left out of the squad. Apart from Chilwell, he others are Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho and Manchester United skipper Harry Maguire who recently returned to England training after several weeks on the sidelines because of the injury picked up last month.

Maguire picked up a serious injury in the Premier League clash between hosts Aston Villa and Manchester United. The injury prompted Maguire to miss the Europa League final clash with Spanish team Villarreal as the Red Devils lost on penalties. He was a doubt for the ongoing Euro 2020 tournament but the former Leicester City centre back has been able to recover from his injury problem and he would be hoping to play a big part for the Three Lions later in the tournament.
