Everton fans want Pickford to start at World Cup

Everton fans have been discussing England’s goalkeeper situation, and most of them are convinced Jordan Pickford is the man for the job.

If there’s one spot that’s “up for grabs” in England’s World Cup squad this summer, it’s the starting goalkeeper, and reports suggest Pickford will start vs the Netherlands on Friday.

Gareth Southgate will probably take two of Joe Hart, Jack Butland, Jordan Pickford and Nick Pope to the World Cup, and it’s still anyone’s guess who gets the nod.

Butland and Pickford are probably the most naturally talented keepers, but the two have conceded more goals than all but one Premier League keeper this season (Jonas Lössl 52, Butland 51, Pickford 50).

Nick Pope is undoubtedly the form keeper, but has only just broken on to the big stage and doesn’t offer the experience someone like Hart does. Hart of course has had a torrid season with West Ham, but there are still many who think he is the best choice.

Everton fans have been discussing the dilemma on Twitter, and while some of them still have some doubts about their ex-Sunderland stopper, they seem mostly convinced he is the best choice.
