England 1-2 Spain: Luke Shaw Stretched Off After Collision With Dani Carvajal (Photos & Video)

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw had to be stretched off after suffering what a appeared to be an head injury while playing for England Vs Spain.

The full-back was playing his first game for the national team since almost four years now and set up the opening goal for Marcus Rashford in the first-half.

But, Shaw badly collided with Spain's Dani Carvajal competing for the ball.

Shaw's head appeared to strike Carvajal's body and the defender immediately went down needing medical assistance.

England's medical team worked on Shaw for several minutes before he needed to be stretched off in a neck brace.

Shaw was awake in the dressing room and spoke to doctors and his family on the phone.

Shaw underwent a scan at Wembley to determine the extent of the injury.

England have released a statement saying: “Luke is awake and alert, having been assessed by our doctor and given an X-ray.

“He'll stay with us overnight for further observation, with another update to come in the morning.”

Manchester United tweeted: “The #MUFC defender is withdrawn after a clash of heads. We're all wishing you a speedy recovery, @LukeShaw23.”

However, Coach Gareth Southgate has provided a positive update and Shaw himself has tweeted he is fine.

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! ❤💪🏼

Southgate said: 'He’s sat up in the dressing room and talking and seems fairly comfortable.

'We’ll have to assess him a bit more overnight and tomorrow. But that’s definitely a good sign anyway.'

Southgate admitted it was too early to confirm or rule out a concussion, with more tests due to be carried out.

He added: 'It’s difficult to tell at the moment. We’ll go through some tests. It’s obviously a nasty looking fall and collision.

'We certainly won’t take any chances with his health. The good news is he is awake and talking and seems fairly comfortable.'
