Shaw pulls out of England under-21 squad
9:43am Wednesday 20th March 2013 in Football
SAINTS left-back Luke Shaw has withdrawn from the England under-21 squad after failing to recover from an injury sustained against Liverpool last weekend.
Stuart Pearce’s side face Romania in Wycombe on Thursday and Austria in Brighton next Monday as warm-up games ahead of the Euro 2013 under-21 tournament.
Shaw was due to link up with the squad yesterday, but remained at Southampton for a scan and informed Pearce of his decision to miss the games this afternoon.
The news is a further blow to Pearce, who will also have to do without Blackpool’s Tom Ince and Manchester United’s Ben Amos.
