Jordan Pickford lived his dreams in Russia as the 24-year-old was picked as England’s first-choice keeper despite having only 3 international caps prior to the tournament.
The diminutive star finally lived up to his billing last year after being recognised as a hot prospect from a very young age and further cemented his reputation as one of the finest keepers England has to offer.
After pulling off a host of jaw-dropping saves for the Three Lions, the youngster was at it again against the Saints on Saturday showcasing his razor sharp reflexes for all to see at Goodison Park.
Although the Everton goalkeeper struggled to hold onto the initial shot from Cedric Soares, Pickford adjusted brilliantly and had absolutely no right to save a Danny Ings shot from such a close range.
The commentator first thought Ings had shanked it! Check out a clip of Pickford’s save of the season contender below:
