England were beaten 2-1 by Spain in their first ever UEFA Nations Cup match a few days ago, but that wasn’t the only highlight from an action-packed encounter at the Wembley Stadium.

One of the major talking points after the game was the condition of English left-back Luke Shaw, who had to be stretchered off the pitch with an oxygen mask following an incident with Daniel Carvajal of Spain.

The Manchester United player looked visibly hurt after the collision, and took the brunt of the contact between the two defenders.

Thankfully, reports soon emerged that Shaw was up and about, and the injury sustained wasn’t as horrific as first thought.

This was upheld by Shaw himself on social media, with a message that all was well with him and the world need not worry. But for Dani Carvajal, the guilt of being the possible reason behind a lengthy lay-off seemed too much to handle.

The Real Madrid full-back was present through much of the medical attention that Shaw received on the pitch, and reports from Marca suggest that the 26-year-old went on to do much more to ensure the well-being of his opponent.

Carvajal apparently went straight to the England dressing room after the match in search of Luke Shaw, but the 23-year-old had already been taken to the hospital by that time.

The Spaniard then proceeded to contact Manchester United and Spain goalkeeper David De Gea, who then gave Shaw’s personal mobile number to Carvajal so he could text him.

The text message was very well appreciated by Shaw, who assured his adversary that he was okay and that it wasn’t anybody’s fault that he had to be taken off the field.

The gesture won the admiration of not just Shaw himself, but also a plenty of football fans, who let this be known through social media.
