England boss Southgate: Not difficult to snub Man Utd fullback Shaw

England coach Gareth Southgate says Manchester United fullback Luke Shaw isn't worthy of inclusion in his Nations League squad.

Shaw, 23, was voted as United's best player of the season by his team-mates, but will not be representing England at this summer's Nations League Finals.

Southgate has instead opted for Tottenham's Danny Rose and Leicester City's Ben Chilwell at left-back, with the Three Lions to face Netherlands in the semi-finals on June 6 before a potential final against either Portugal or Switzerland on June 9.

Asked whether leaving Shaw out was a difficult choice, Southgate told reporters: "No. I think Ben Chilwell and Danny Rose have been excellent. At the moment they are ahead."
