first_img“Pickford is too short”– Thibaut Courtois pic.twitter.com/gEF0mrrK83— Match Photography (@MatchPhotos) July 3, 2018 Pickford made up for Jordan Henderson missing his spot-kick by saving Carlos Bacca’s effort, stretching his left hand high to push the strike clear of his goal. Moments later, Eric Dier stepped up and converted the winning penalty to send England through to a clash against Sweden, which will be LIVE on talkSPORT on Saturday afternoon.Pickford’s brilliant showing came just a few days after the Everton keeper was criticised by Belgium glovesman Thibaut Courtois for being too short.“The goalkeeper is 10cm smaller than me,” Courtois said, after Belgium’s 1-0 defeat of England last week.“I would have caught it [Adnan Januzaj’s shot, which was the winning goal]. He was too busy throwing his legs in the air.”Unfortunately for Courtois, the joke has turned on the Chelsea man, with him roundly mocked on Twitter after Pickford’s brilliant showing last night.You can see some of the best comments below… Pickford helped England to the historic feat of winning a penalty shootout at the World Cup Still can’t get over that save from Jordan Pickford, just before Mina scored for Colombia.

What a pen save Pickford! #TSworldcup— talkSPORTDrive (@talkSPORTDrive) July 3, 2018center_img 1 Wonder what Courtois has to say about Pickford’s saves— mv (@Maarvi_) July 4, 2018 In the space of one night, Jordan Pickford has become England’s latest national hero.The Everton goalkeeper helped the Three Lions defeat Colombia on penalties to book their place in the World Cup quarter-finals for the first time in 12 years. Remember when Courtois criticised Pickford, but then Pickford was the keeper who won our first ever shootout in a world cup? I do, it was like 4 days ago.No matter what, we did a goal!— Joe Stead (@Joe_Stead) July 3, 2018 Pickford’s save at the end of 90 mins was pure genius. From a keeper’s perspective he sees the flight of the ball, knows his height is an issue and takes small short steps back to give himself more time to see/save it and allow the ball to dip. Amazing. Save of the tourno. #Eng— Hari Sri (@harisrih) July 3, 2018 Let’s be honest the script have been written for Pickford v Courtois in the final hasn’t it?— I doth beleiveth it cometh home (@Im_sprouticus) July 4, 2018 Pickford’s save before Colombia’s goal really is one of the best saves of all time. It’s actually fucking unbelievable how he got that. Stick that in ya pipe and smoke it Courtois. He weren’t too short there was he.— Sam Michael Bunce (@Bunce1709) July 3, 2018last_img
