Luke Shaw has been one of England's best players at Euro 2020 - and his displays have been given the seal of approval by legendary left-back Roberto Carlos.
Shaw's performances have been key to England's progress to the semi-finals, none more so than his two assists in Saturday's last-eight victory over Ukraine.
The Manchester United man took to social media after the game to celebrate England's win and among those to respond was Brazil icon Roberto Carlos, widely recognised as the greatest left-sided defender in history who tweeted a number of clapping hands emojis.

"His [Shaw's] delivery was great," said England boss Gareth Southgate after the Ukraine win.
"We talked a lot in the week about set-piece goals and we put more emphasis on it.
"It looked like we would be dangerous in training and usually that transfers into the game and that's what happened."

Coming off the back of a superb season at United, Shaw is arguably in the form of his life right now.
The 25-year-old has been revitalised under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after a torrid time during Jose Mourinho's tenure, with the Portuguese regularly criticising Shaw in public. It's a feud that continues to rumble to this day.
Shaw's two assists in four minutes are as many as he managed in 2542 of them in the Premier League under Mourinho.
How apt that they came in his old manager's new backyard of Roma's Stadio Olimpico, although Mourinho did begrudgingly admit that Shaw had a good game.
Manchester United will offer Luke Shaw a new contract in the next months. He's considered a key player and Solskjaer wants Luke to be 100% involved in the project. :red_circle: #MUFC- Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) July 4, 2021
There's still nothing agreed with AC Milan for Diogo Dalot. Trippier price tag from Atleti - always €40m.
Meanwhile, United are reportedly lining up a fresh contract offer for Shaw to reward the star for his stellar season.
According to reporter Fabrizio Romano, Shaw could be offered a new deal in the next few months with Solskjaer seeing the former Southampton man as a key part of a project to challenge for the Premier League title.
Shaw featured 47 times at left-back under Solskjaer last term in all competitions, providing six assists and scoring once.
