Luke Shaw’s participation in EURO 2024 in doubt due to ongoing muscle issue as England boss Gareth Southgate prepares to announce provisional squad next week

Luke Shaw is a doubt to make England’s European Championships squad after Erik ten Hag revealed the left back is still struggling with a muscle problem.

Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate is set to name his provisional squad for Euro 2024 on Tuesday, with major question marks over Shaw.

Shaw hasn’t featured for United since picking up an injury during the February win over Luton Town – and he is in a race against time to be involved in next week’s FA Cup final at Wembley.

‘For England I can’t say but for the cup final we’re working on it,’ he said of Shaw.

‘Harry Maguire has a fair chance that he will be available. Luke is more complicated in this moment, let’s say it’s less of a chance he will make it but still a very small chance.

‘He had a setback, now we have to find out how far it is.’

Asked about Shaw back in March, Southgate conceded that relying on the United left back for the entirety of the tournament was highly unlikely.

It means England are set to be without their first choice left back in Germany.

‘He’s going to be right on the edge of the season,’ Southgate said in March. ‘We know now to play seven matches in a Euros is highly unlikely.’
