Playing a sport is one thing and living for it is another. We know some players as professionals who play the sport while some make things memorable for us by their dedication and devotion towards the game. Even though England lost the Euro 2020 finals, their effort in the field cannot be forgotten and also that they were playing in a major final after almost 55 years. Luke Shaw made the final interesting with his ‘under two minutes goal’. Not just the finals, Shaw was a standout performer for Southgate's England throughout the tournament. It never looked like he was being troubled by an injury.

In a recent revelation, it has been found out that Luke Shaw played in the Euro 2020 with broken ribs. The England left-back reportedly played against Ukraine, Denmark, and Italy with broken ribs. The reports also suggest that the 26-year old sustained the injury during the last-16 match against arch-rivals Germany. His club, Manchester United is waiting for Shaw's return to assess the extent of the damage.
