England were beaten 2-1 in their UEFA Nations League opener

Luke Shaw allayed concerns over his well-being after sustaining a sickening-looking injury that overshadowed England’s UEFA Nations League opener against Spain.

The 23-year-old sent in an exceptional pass for Marcus Rashford’s opener on his first international start since September 2015 – an appearance that came just a week before the hideous injury that he recently revealed nearly cost him his leg.

But Shaw’s assured return to England duty came to a shuddering halt minutes into second half, with his head appearing to hit Dani Carvajal’s hip before bouncing off the turf.

The impact was audible from the stands and led to him leaving on a stretcher wearing an oxygen mask and a neck brace after lengthy treatment.

However, Shaw’s condition is not as bad as first feared, with the left-back posting on Twitter an hour after the match ended 2-1.
