'Well deserved' - Fans praise Luke Shaw's England recall

30th Aug 2018

Gareth Southgate has today named his first England squad since the World Cup.

The Three Lions reached the last four in Russia, but Southgate has not been afraid to make a few tweaks to his selection.

The main beneficiary is Manchester United defender Luke Shaw, who has earned a recall for September's fixtures against Spain and Switzerland.

Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy has secured a call up due to Nick Pope's injury while Burnley defender James Tarkowski, who was only deemed to be good enough for the World Cup standby list, has forced his way back into the reckoning.

Liverpool's Joe Gomez and Adam Lallana are also back in the squad, having impressed during the opening weeks of the Premier League season.

However, despite England's successful summer, fans still can't agree on who deserves to be pulling on the famous white shirt....

Most fans seem to be pleased for Shaw, but others have questioned whether a handful of good games was enough to move ahead of Ashley Young in the pecking order.
