Man Utd fullback Shaw: England must not obsess about Mbappe

England star Luke Shaw has warned his side they must not become obsessed by the danger posed by Kylian Mbappe.

The Three Lions are set to take on France in the quarter finals of the World Cup.

While Shaw acknowledges that star man Mbappe is a huge threat for the French, he does not want his teammates to ignore France's other threats.

Manchester United fullback Shaw stated of PSG ace Mbappe pre-match: “We managed to watch the end of the (France) game on the coach and after his (Mbappe's) performance, there is going to be even more chat about him, and we know he is a world-class player.

“But I think it would be very naive of us to focus purely on him.

“They (France) are world champions for a reason, because they have brilliant players all over the whole pitch, so we are not going to fully focus on him."
