Luke Shaw has described Manchester United team-mate Kobbie Mainoo's progression over the past year as "scary".

Shaw and Mainoo are on England duty together at Euro 2024, with the midfielder having started the final group match and both knockout ties.

Defender Shaw made his first appearance of the tournament as a substitute in the quarter-final win over Switzerland.

"When I first saw Kobbie he was in and out of first-team training, but you could see the qualities he had," said the left-back.

"He was unfortunate and got an injury [in pre-season], which maybe set him back a bit - but it didn't stop him.

"He has got the world at his feet. He just needs to stay level-headed, keep working hard and the world is his oyster.

"He can honestly achieve anything."
