Carlos, 48, reached the World Cup final on two occasions, lifting the trophy in 2002.

He made 125 caps for Brazil and was part of the Galacticos side at Real Madrid, for whom he scored 43 goals.

With Madrid he won La Liga on four occasions and has three Champions League titles to brag of, so Shaw should be buzzing at the recognition paid to him.

And Shaw, with two assists on Saturday night to set-up Harry Maguire and Harry Kane shortly after half-time, put in a performance reminiscent of Carlos.

Like the Brazilian, Shaw marauded up and down the left-wing and posed a threat throughout, and he now has the second-most assists in the tournament,

Carlos is often remembered for a remarkable free-kick he scored against France, when he managed to curl the ball around the wall and into the bottom corner.

Shaw’s inch-perfect free-kick against Ukraine presented Maguire with the perfect opportunity to head in, which the centre-back did in style.
