thumbnail Hello,

The Southampton youngster has impressed at left-back this season and is reportedly due for a call-up to the Three Lions in their upcoming friendly against Denmark

Luke Shaw's already-impressive season could be about to get better with an England call-up.

The 18-year-old Southampton left-back has enjoyed an eye-catching run of form this campaign, establishing his place in the first team in only his second top-flight campaign. Shaw has featured in all but three of the Saints' league games, as they sit eighth in the table currently having finished 14th the season before.

Under Mauricio Pochettino, Southampton have played some wonderful football this season and Shaw has made a name for himself despite his young age. An attacking full-back, the technically gifted Shaw possesses the necessary speed and decision-making skills to carry out his defensive duties, and his composure marks him out as one of the brightest talents in the nation as well.

It has been suggested that Shaw's form will lead to a call-up to the Three Lions by manager Roy Hodgson for their upcoming friendly against Denmark on March 5. Hodgson has already indicated that Ashley Cole, for so long the undisputed choice at left-back, is now no longer an automatic starter following the improvement of Everton's Leighton Baines and now, Shaw.

The majority of Goal Singapore readers have also agreed that Shaw should be handed a place in the squad, with 75.3% believing that he is good enough.

His assistant manager Jesus Perez has claimed that talk of a call-up will not distract the youngster from continuing his fine form, which has also resulted in Shaw being linked to the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea.
