Asked by talkSPORT about playing more before Qatar 2022, Shaw said: “That’s what everyone wants.
“I think Ten Hag, the boss, he knows my qualities, he knows what I’m capable of and we’ve had chats.
“It’s understandable that – and I even agree – the start of the season wasn’t good enough and he had to make changes. And I fully accept that, I accepted it.
“The only thing I can do is train hard and wait for my opportunities, whether that’s in the cup games or the Premier League.
“Whatever I play in, I just have to be ready and play at the standard I should be at.”
“You look at the results of the last two major tournaments and it’s bizarre how people can attack him and say it’s not good enough,” Shaw added.
“At the moment we haven’t won, we have to win a major tournament to be extremely successful, but we’re heading in the right direction and he’s guiding us in the right direction.
“From when he first came in, you’ve seen the difference in the England team to where we are now but of course the results recently haven’t been good enough. We’ll be ready in the World Cup.”
