Jordan Pickford insists nothing fazes him after MOTM England display

Chris Kirkland England

England penalty hero Jordan Pickford has responded to a comment made from Belgium and Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois concerning his height following his penalty shootout heroics against Colombia on Tuesday.

Gareth Southgate's side looked to have won the tie in normal time after Harry Kane converted a 57th-minute penalty having been hauled down in the box.

Former Tottenham striker Mido believes that Kyle Walker should be dropped for the upcoming quarter final against Sweden, and replaced by Spurs defensive midfielder Eric Dier.

England will now face Sweden in the Quarter Final game this Saturday from 3PM on BBC One.

It might even rival Banks's storied save from Brazil great Pele in the 1970 World Cup.

With only three previous global caps to his credit, Pickford was a bit of a surprise choice for the starting XI berth in the greatest show on earth, given England's history of opting for the conventional choice in goalkeeping, in this case Joe Hart being the most obvious choice.

"I want to send an important message to those people who think things can be resolved with violence, and with weapons, that they can take someone's life just because they make a mistake, in this case the life of a football player".

Henderson was anxious when his miss gave Colombia the advantage in a nerve-shredding conclusion to an absorbing encounter in Moscow.

"I wasn't born the last time England reached a World Cup semi-final", said Pickford.

England had researched Colombia's penalty takers beforehand and Pickford said: "We had a fair feeling, and Falcao was the only one who didn't go his usual way". "I've got that power and agility to get around the goal".

He added: "I think it's an advantage for us that their game went all the way to a penalty shoot-out".

We are a young side, but we're an experienced young side, as daft as that sounds.

He told Liverpool's official website: 'I didn't see it today, but so far he's played a brilliant World Cup - very mature, a proper leader in the team and you can see it. But we just knew how to reset - "bang, we're going again".
