Ex-Man Utd boss Mourinho tells Southgate: Take Shaw off corners!

Former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has taken fresh aim at Luke Shaw after England's Euro 2020 victory over the Czech Republic.

Mourinho, speaking to talkSPORT, said that overall he was impressed with England but suggested that, whoever they come up against next out of France, Germany, Portugal or Hungary, Gareth Southgate should take Shaw off corner duty.

"The negative thing I would say is once more they were very poor on attacking corners," Mourinho explained.

"The service was dramatically bad. They have so many good players to attack corners. The crosses are not passing the first man.

"Luke Shaw, in my opinion, very good tonight but very poor on the corner. Phillips, the same.

"England has great power at this level and going to knockouts, one corner can decide a game."
