Luke Shaw gets the call from Roy Hodgson - quite literally in this Vine from Southampton
The left-back is included in the squad to play Denmark next Wednesday
Thursday 27 February 2014
Southampton have come up with an ingenious way of announcing Luke Shaw's call-up to the England squad, by posting a Vine video of him answering a call from Roy Hodgson.
The six-second video, presumably staged, shows an incoming call on Shaw's iPhone from the England manager - a moment many young footballers can only dream of. The video, posted on the club's official Twitter feed, was accompanied by the message "He's in! Congratulations to @LukeShaw3, who has just been named in the #England squad. #saintsfc".
It is the first time that four Southampton players have been named in the same England squad, with Adam Lallana, Ricky Lambert and Jay Rodriguez joining Shaw for the friendly with Denmark next week.
