With Shaw closing in on full steam, manager Gareth Southgate is likely to bring him into the fold for their final group match.

“Luke will not be involved tomorrow,” Southgate told reporters this week.

“He’s actually on track for where we originally thought. We were hoping a few days ago that we could accelerate that, but he needs a bit more volume work. There are days where he needs to do more than the rest of the group.

“Luke is an excellent player, that’s why we made the decision to sign him, even though he hasn’t been playing for long. We hope he can be available as soon as possible. I don’t want to put a timeline on it.” here and now, but he is making good progress.”
