One of the most prominent features on a soccer pitch is the physical strength and skill of its players, a certain player dominating a game with brutal strength can completely shift the momentum in a match.
Perhaps that’s exactly what happened as Manchester United defender Luke Shaw displayed raw physical power to help his team early during their win against Newcastle United.

The former Real Madrid and Juventus player was the talk of the town, but one Manchester United player that flew under the radar was Luke Shaw.
