Byline: AARON CATTERSON-REID

UNITED left-back Luke Shaw has admitted that Arsenal starlet Bukayo Saka has become his 'brother' during England's Euro 2020 camp.

The Three Lions have enjoyed a hugely successful Euro 2020 campaign so far, winning three of their four games as they find themselves in the quarterfinals for the first time since Euro 2012.

Gareth Southgate's side will face Ukraine tonight as they look to book their place against either the Czech Republic or Denmark in the semi-final at Wembley on July 7.

United defender Shaw has been a pivotal part of the England side, playing a crucial role in their 2-0 win over Germany on Tuesday.

And the former Southampton man has admitted he has found a new 'brother' in team-mate and Arsenal starlet Bukayo Saka during the tournament.

"Honestly, I love him", Shaw said in Thursday's press conference.

"I would just love it if he was my child or something, I love him like that and you could ask anyone in the squad and they would say how nice a guy he honestly is.

"I didn't know him before I came to the camp and I didn't know what he would be like but I have got on so well with him, I would love him to be my brother. He is so cool, so funny and he makes everyone laugh and he doesn't mean it.

"He is not a loud person it is just the way he is, the way he speaks.

"Someone like that in the camp is good to have and he gets everyone laughing and we just all love him."
