Gareth Southgate has revealed that it wasn’t a hard decision to leave Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw out of his England squad for the Nations League finals, insisting Ben Chilwell and Danny Rose are ahead of him.

“They’re ahead and have played particularly well. They’ve given everything for the England shirt.”
