Brazil legend Roberto Carlos has heaped praise on England left-back Luke Shaw and said he has everything it takes to go to the top.

Shaw, who also enjoyed a fine season with Manchester United, has become

Gareth Southgate

's first-choice option in his position

The

has been likened to Brazil legend

Roberto Carlos

by team-mate

Declan Rice

after another impressive show during England’s 4-0 victory over

Ukraine

in Rome.

Shaw set up two goals in during the victory, following up an assist for

Raheem Sterling

in the historic 2-0 win over

Germany

at Wembley days earlier.

Ex-Brazil star Roberto Carlos was impressed by the 25-year-old performances and put applause emojis in the comments of Shaw's Instagram post after the victory.

"You can see he's very motivated,"

Carlos said

.

"He's really improving, his performance against Ukraine was very good. He's been an important part of this English team, along with all the others.

"He's been improving each game and I think he's got everything to get to the top. He's the left-back for England, that in itself says a lot."

Asked if he sees similarities between his game and the England left-back, Carlos said ahead of the semi-final against

Denmark

: "I don't like comparing.

"It's two completely different periods in football. I had my time and now he's having his. Similarities I think could be that he has strength and the desire to win, just like I did."
