Thibaut Courtois responds to claims he mocked Jordan Pickford

  • Wilmar Barrios headbutt Jordan Henderson

Courtois claimed he could have "caught" the shot because he's taller than Pickford and the Everton man hit back at the comments after his penalty shootout heroics against Colombia.

The pair could yet meet again in the World Cup final with England to face Sweden on Saturday for the chance to reach the final four.

One impressively merged an image of the Liverpool keeper scrambling to collect a ball trickling into the goal with an outstretched Pickford.

"There could have been several red cards", the 24-year-old Manchester City man said.

Soham-born former Ipswich and Bury Town goalkeeper Pope, in Russian Federation as Gareth Southgate's third-choice goalkeeper, has played a vital role in England's preparation for penalty shoot-outs in training, with Dier insisting the 26-year-old deserves plenty of credit for his winning effort in Moscow.

"The highlight of that was the clean sheet", he said of the victory over Sweden.

"The award will go on my mantelpiece, that one". Pickford said. "It's about keeping performing and getting better and the more you play the better you become".




"This is where I want to be".

Thirty minutes of extra time failed to celebrate the sides, before the young England team exorcised the demons of shootouts past with a 4-3 spotkick win. "I don't put myself under any pressure, I embrace the moment and play in the moment".

England had lost on penalties in 1990, 1998 and 2006 at previous World Cups, going out to Germany, Argentina and Portugal. "I have the power and agility". "We are based on working hard for each other".

He added: "We knew we had this game, even if it had to go to penalties, we knew we were capable of winning".

Gareth Southgate has also hailed the Sunderland native, lauding him as a model for the next generation of goalkeepers to aspire to.

As long as I'm in the right position, I give myself every chance to save them. The number of touches he has with his feet is exceptionally high.
