Man Utd fullback Shaw laughs off bettering Zidane Euros record

Manchester United fullback Luke Shaw has laughed off bettering a Zinedine Zidane Euros record.

Shaw provided assists for two of Three Lions' four goals against Ukraine as they booked their place in the semi-final of Euro 2020.

Having also created Raheem Sterling's goal against Germany, it means he has provided more assists than even the Zidane's record of two in Euros history.

When informed of the landmark, Shaw said: “A very strange stat! A nice one, I think. Obviously Zidane was one of the best midfielders ever and I can't compare to him, like I've said before about different people.

"It's a nice stat to obviously hear, but the most important thing for me tonight was reaching the semi-final, getting another game at Wembley in front of our own crowd and hopefully making them happy again."
