MANCHESTER, England — Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw could be forced to pull out of the England squad after suffering an injury against Newcastle United, sources have told ESPN FC.
Shaw completed 90 minutes in the 3-2 win at Old Trafford on Saturday evening but is a doubt for Nations League games against Croatia and Spain during the international break.
He will be assessed by the United medical staff on Sunday before a decision is made about whether the defender can join up with England on Monday.
England play Croatia in Rijeka on Friday before travelling to Sevilla to face Spain on Oct. 15.
Sources have told ESPN FC that Shaw’s injury is only considered minor and the 23-year-old, who has become Jose Mourinho’s first-choice left-back this season, should be available for the trip to Chelsea on Oct. 20.
