Debut A Dream Come True For Shaw

Debut A Dream Come True For Shaw

Youngster Luke Shaw has said it was a dream come true to make his World Cup debut for England in our draw earlier tonight with Costa Rica.

18 year old Southampton left back, Shaw, became the youngster player to appear at the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil when he took to the field earlier today, and speaking to theFA.com he said the experience was 'amazing' and he now can't wait to hopefully appear for his country on a more regular basis.

To be fair, he certainly didn't show much fear when going forward and he was good in defence, especially the one attack where he kept his marbles (unlike Luis Suarez tonight) and stayed on his feet in our box, to put in a good block instead of having a rush of blood and going to ground, so he certainly justified his selection in my mind.

'It was amazing. For me to only be 18 years old and to be playing in the biggest competition in the world is a dream come true. And I don't want it to stop now. I want to keep on pushing and pushing myself to get better and better, and hopefully get more caps in the future.'

Earlier tonight was Shaw's third England cap so far, and it has been a somewhat meteoric rise rise this season for the player who has certainly been turning heads and attraction attention.

Certainly a good start from him, but it's only a start and he needs to keep his feet on the ground and realise he's a long way to go yet, but he can proud of the fact he didn't do his chances going forward any harm at all on that showing.
