BBC Sport - World Cup 2014: Francis Benali backs Luke Shaw for England
Benali backs Shaw for World Cup
- From the section Football
Former Southampton defender Francis Benali tells BBC Late Kick off South that current Saints left-back Luke Shaw deserves to go to the World Cup with England, ahead of Ashley Cole.
"He is a fabulous footballer," Benali says. "To show the calmness and experience he does on the pitch at such a tender age , he is getting better and better with each game. I think he stepped up to the international stage [against Denmark] and deserves to be there with his performances."
