Pickford Is England's Penalty Hero Again

Jordan Pickford was England's spot-kick hero once again as they beat Switzerland on penalties to finish third in the inaugural Uefa Nations League.

The Everton keeper saved from Josip Drmic to seal the win after the first 11 penalties in the shootout were scored - having stepped forward to hammer home England's fifth in confident fashion.

Pickford’s heroics followed his penalty shootout feat last summer when he saved Colombia’s Carlos Bacca’s effort in the last 16 to give England their first ever spot-kick success at a World Cup finals.

The Three Lions' victory over Switzerland, following a goalless draw, gave them a small measure of consolation after they lost their semi-final to the Netherlands and it was deserved after they created all the best opportunities in a predictably low-key affair.
