I was impressed with Pickford - Gareth Southgate

England manager Gareth Southgate was impressed by Jordan Pickford's World Cup audition as the battle to become England's number one heats up. The Everton goalkeeper was selected ahead of Joe Hart, Nick Pope and Jack Butland for England's 1-0 victory against the Netherlands in Amsterdam on Friday night.
Southgate was impressed with how the 24-year-old acquitted himself in just his second senior appearance for England.

He said “Yes it was a good night for Pickford definitely he transferred what we know he can do into an important game, a game away from home, so that was good for him. I think it was not the test that we faced in November in terms of the pressure on our defence and the experience of the players. But, nevertheless, I think that's 11 clean sheets from our 16 games and that gives us a good base to build from.”
