Manchester United fans have been left salivating after defender Luke Shaw put in a superb shift with two England stars in their romp against Ukraine.
The Three Lions are into the Euro 2020 semi-finals after securing a 4-0 win at the Stadio Olimpico, Rome, with Denmark waiting at Wembley.
Gareth Southgate’s side were in the lead after just four minutes thanks to the combination of Manchester City rival Raheem Sterling and transfer target Harry Kane.
But it was all about headers in the second half, with two of them coming from assists by Shaw.
The 25-year-old looped in a free kick from the left wing within seconds of the restart – and his cross to the back post fell straight onto Harry Maguire’s head for the second goal.
While he picked up a flick from Sterling on an overlapping run five minutes later to put the ball on Kane’s head for his brace.
With Liverpool's Jordan Henderson heading in a fourth, United faithful flooded Twitter with praise for their No.23 for the huge role he played in the Euro 2020 victory.
“Two assists from Luke Shaw. He's talking with his football,” one supporter said.

Another commented: “Luke Shaw is f***ing unreal.”
While a third compared him to a legendary full-back, with: “[World Cup 2002 winner with Brazil] Roberto Carlos had posters of luke Shaw on his walls as a kid.”
And a fourth added: “Luke Shaw has developed into Roberto Carlos during the Euros.”
Shaw’s club also added a message with their own praise for the defender, offering an “appreciation post” on their official Twitter channel.
The 25-year-old came into the tournament after a strong season at Old Trafford, making 47 appearances as well as grabbing six assists and a goal.
But it may not come as a surprise to United legend Denis Irwin, who won seven Premier League titles and the 1999 treble, after his comments earlier in the week about the full-back’s impact on the England squad.
Speaking to the club’s website on Friday, the 55-year-old said: “He's been brilliant as we've seen this season.

“I know he didn't play in the first game [against Croatia], but he had a huge impact the other night [against Germany], particularly in the second half where he was involved in the two goals.
“Him and Harry [Maguire] have done really, really well.
“England have not conceded a goal yet, the keeper looks strong, and I thought the other night, besides the [Thomas] Muller chance, there weren't many chances given up.
“And they've looked very solid, England, and Luke and Harry have been a big part of that.”
