The Man Utd left back was substituted early on in the game after a strong tackle in the 15th minute from Hector Moreno left the player writhing in pain forcing the half to be prolonged by an extra 8 minutes due delay.

Support messages have been coming in with fans, teammates, and former club Southampton all showing concern, Shaw acknowledged the goodwill messages in a tweet saying:
“Thank you everyone for your messages, words can’t describe how gutted I am, my road to recovery starts now, I will come back stronger”
Meanwhile Hector Moreno, the man at the other end of the tackle, also showed his concern by admitting he too had broken his leg at the summer World Cup and meant no harm also wishing the best for the injured player. But the fans of Man Utd are having none of it with some troll directed at him including some strong abusive words while some analysts of the game believe he should have been sent off for the horrendous tackle.
the international front, there are fears Luke Shaw could miss out on the summer
Euros which would be a devastating blow to the player and the English national
team. The English Player has been in fine form and has been backed to make the left back spot his own and join the players in the Century Club of having 100 caps.
