Luke Shaw Scored The Fastest Goal In Euros Final History And Wembley Erupted

England made a dream start to their first ever European Championship final as Luke Shaw sent Wembley into raptures with an early opener.

It was a furiously intense opening passage from Gareth Southgate's side and one that featured a stunning team move finished off by Shaw.

The Manchester United left-back started the move off in his own half and fed the ball to skipper Harry Kane, who switched play out wide on the opposite side to Kieran Trippier.

England attacked quickly in numbers and Shaw continued to maraude into the box before producing a sublime finish at the far post following a perfect pick-out from Trippier.

1 minute and 57 seconds was on the clock when Shaw fired past Gianluigi Donnarumma and you just know beers were flying everywhere up and down the country.

Shaw, who suffered a devastating leg-break against PSV back in 2015, becomes England's first goalscorer in a major final since the 1966 World Cup on home soil.

The former Southampton man also made more history in becoming the first ever United player to notch in a Euros final.

Shaw carried his fine club form into the Euros, where he looks nailed on to make the team of the tournament after three assists, a series of clean sheets and now a goal on the the big stage.

A string of excellent performances have seen him compared to former Real Madrid and Brazil left-back Roberto Carlos, with England colleagues even joining in by nicknaming him 'Shawberto Carlos'.
