Shaw hails Southampton's English talent

Southampton fullback Luke Shaw has hailed the English talent at St Mary's.

Southampton fullback Luke Shaw has hailed the English talent at St Mary's.

Shaw was one four Southampton players in Hodgson's 30-man squad to face Denmark, joining the previously-capped Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert and Jay Rodriguez.

That was a record number of call-ups for Saints, but Shaw believes that number could soon be beaten as the likes of Nathaniel Clyne, Calum Chambers, Jack Cork and James Ward-Prowse look to follow suit.

"It is unbelievable [to be at a club with so many Englishmen]," he said.

"There were four of us in the England squad on Wednesday and I am sure there is going to be more in the future.

"The team spirit is great, especially when we are winning. It is very high and it is like a family club.

"Everyone looks after each other, especially the older lads with the likes of me, Calum and Prowsey. They help us a lot at training."
