Dani Carvajal brilliantly reached out to Luke Shaw following his nasty aerial injury during England's global fixture against Spain.

England's Luke Shaw lies on the pitch after sustaining an injury during the Uefa Nations League Group A4 match with Spain at the Wembley Stadium September 8, 2018.

But after setting up England's opening goal with a wonderful low ball to club teammate Marcus Rashford, Shaw was forced off early in the second half when his head thumped into Spain defender Dani Carvajal.

Luke Shaw's seven-day mandatory period recovering from concussion means he will be unavailable for Manchester United's clash with Watford on Saturday.

Meanwhile, England's manager, Gareth Southgate also gave an update about the defender and said they wouldn't take any chances.

Minutes later, the former Southampton player needed to be stretchered off, as doctors at Wembley continued giving him the needed medical attention.

Shaw tweeted after the game to say he was "doing fine", though he will continue to be monitored on Sunday before travelling back to his club.

Players, colleague and fans were anxious about Shaw, but hours later, the youngster thanked everyone, and stated that he is a fighter and will be back soon.

The Spaniard reportedly sent Shaw a text message, apologising for his completely-accidental role in the incident per Marca.

He was fully deserving of Man United's Player of the Month award for August.
