Luke Shaw 'doing fine' after head injury sustained in England defeat as Harry Kane says referee 'bottled' big decision
Makkelie judged that Welbeck had fouled the Manchester United goalkeeper before he dropped the ball in an extended period added on at the end of the match because of a serious injury to Luke Shaw. The full-back was carried off on a stretcher with his neck in a brace after a collision with Dani Carvajal on 47 minutes.
Shaw, watched at Wembley by his club manager Jose Mourinho, later tweeted: “Thank you for all the love and support I am doing fine and am in the best hands. I’m a fighter so I will be back soon.”
England pushed hard in the closing stages and thought they had the equaliser in the 97th minute. Kane said later: “In the big moments you need the referee to stay strong but unfortunately he has bottled it. In the big moments you need a firm referee who doesn’t get decisions wrong under pressure. Danny Welbeck stood there, De Gea went up, he caught the ball but as he went down he fell on Danny, no foul or anything, and the ball dropped.
“It was a good game, a good test against a team that keeps the ball well. It was difficult but we had good spells in the game and we probably created the better chances. We tried to press and play with high intensity. There’s a lot of stuff we can learn from but I think we can hold our heads up high.”
