Shaw Update: Manchester United Defender Suffers Horrific Head Injury While On International Duty
England defender Luke Shaw says he is “doing fine” after he suffered an head injury in England’s 2-1 defeat by Spain in the Nations League at Wembley.
The Manchester United defender was carried off on a stretcher early in the second half after receiving treatment for close to seven minutes.
He was treated by more than 10 members of the medical team.
“Thank for for all the love and support,” Shaw posted on Twitter. “I am doing fine and in the best hands.”
He added: “I’m a fighter so I will be back soon.”
After Saturday’s game, England manager Gareth Southgate said: “Luke is up and talking and needs to be assessed.”
Shaw, 23, was making his first England appearance since March 2017 and set up Marcus Rashford’s goal.
But he collided with Spain right-back Dani Carvajal while challenging for an aerial ball and landed heavily just after half-time.
