The Manchester United full-back put the Three Lions into the lead before two minutes were even on the clock
England made a dream start to the final of Euro 2020 as Luke Shaw volleyed them into a second-minute lead against Italy.
From an Italy corner, the hosts broke through Kieran Trippier, a surprise selection in Gareth Southgate’s starting XI, with the Atletico Madrid full-back centring for Shaw to volley home.
Naturally, it sparked a joyous reaction on Twitter, with the likes of England legends Alan Shearer and Gary Lineker among those to celebrate.
What was said?
Many people also pointed out the rarity of Shaw’s strike, which was confirmed as the quickest ever in a European Championship final.
Jose Mourinho, the Manchester United manager who pushed him to the sidelines, also received plenty of stick.
