Hodgson backed Man United's Shaw to shine at Euros

Crocked England defender Luke Shaw could have been in the team of the tournament at Euro 2016, according to Roy Hodgson.

The 20-year-old Manchester United left-back suffered a double leg break in their Champions League defeat to PSV Eindhoven last month and has since undergone two operations.

"We were certainly punting on him being the (England) left-back and arguably looking to be the best left-back in the tournament," he said of Shaw, who currently has six senior caps.

"It is a cruel blow, particularly for him, England will survive and he will too but at that stage in your career to suffer that type of injury when you have almost had a year of not playing is heart-breaking and we feel for him - and he knows how much we care."

Rojo has missed the last two games with a hamstring problem, but Carrick and Valencia started Saturday's 3-0 win over Sunderland while Herrera was an unused substitute.

Louis van Gaal is expected to reveal the details of the injuries at a press conference on Tuesday afternoon.

Youngsters Josh Harrop, Donald Love and James Weir were drafted in for the session because of the injuries.
