England are through to the semi-finals of the European Championship after demolishing Ukraine in Rome on Saturday evening.
A brace from Harry Kane was added to by Jordan Henderson and EuroJournal captain Harry Maguire, with the Three Lions sealing a 4-0 win.
England’s triumphant display resulted in euphoria across the country and a number of players were hailed for their stellar performances.
United full-back Luke Shaw was among them, continuing his fine performances for Gareth Southgate’s side and replicating the excellent form he has displayed for the past 12 months.
Has Luke Shaw been England’s best player at Euro 2020? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
Having played a key-part in both of England’s goals against Germany last time out, Shaw caught the eye again in the quarter-final.
Two assists from the 25-year-old saw Shaw reach three for the tournament, having assisted Raheem Sterling’s opener against Germany, and his performance in Rome equalled a European Championship record for most assists in a single match.
Incidentally, his performance also helped to prove a point to former boss and long-time adversary Jose Mourinho in a new way — with his display coming at the Stadio Olimpico, the home of Roma, Mourinho’s new employers.
United fans on social media were quick to identify that point and quickly flooded Twitter with their reactions, enjoying the latest opportunity to hit back at Mourinho for his treatment to Shaw.
Since the Portuguese boss departed Old Trafford, Shaw has secured a new lease of life at the club, particularly in the past year under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Shaw is tied with Tottenham and Denmark’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg for the second-most assists at Euro 2020, behind only Switzerland’s Steven Zuber with four.
