Bridge believes Luke Shaw should be England’s first-choice left-back

Former England and Chelsea star Wayne Bridge believes Luke Shaw should be regarded as the first-choice left-back for the Three Lions. The 23-year-old was recently crowned as Manchester United’s Player of the Year following an impressive upturn in league form but that has not been sufficient to earn him a spot with the Three Lions for the Nations League finals.

Speaking to Press Association Sport, Bridge said that Shaw has made a tremendous comeback after his double leg break four years ago and personally, he would have him as the first-choice left-back with the Three Lions, he told: “I think Luke Shaw’s a brilliant player. I think he had a nasty, nasty injury (a double leg break in 2015) and all credit to him for coming back from it and I think he’s probably been one of United’s better players. He’s done really well playing in a team that hasn’t been performing that well. I’d put him at number one spot.”
