VIDEO: Flaw exposed in Manchester United's Luke Shaw

Old Trafford

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw was caught out with a basic error for the England under-21s earlier this week.

A video of Croatia’s goal in the under-21 game against England exposes a weakness in Manchester United defender Luke Shaw according to 101greatgoals.

England won the tie 4-2 over the two legs, but Shaw was at fault for Croatia’s goal in the game this week after he was caught ball watching, as Croatia took advantage of his sloppiness to go ahead in the game.

It was widely praised as a sensible decision when it was announced that Shaw would be dropping down into the under-21 ranks over linking up with the England senior side.

That decision was more than likely based on a little bit of rustiness from the youngster after he missed the start of United’s season due to a lack of fitness, which Louis van Gaal openly criticised.

That rustiness appeared to be on display again for the under-2 side, but it shouldn’t be a major concern for United fans as he’ll sharpen up over the course of the season as he starts to play more games.
