The goalkeeping situation was one of the biggest questions surrounding the England squad ahead of their World Cup campaign and three games into Russia 2018, it’s arguably not been fully solved.
While Gareth Southgate has never shown any signs of retracting his faith in Jordan Pickford – in fact, the Three Lions gaffer provided a staunch defence of the 24-year-old during his last press conference – the Everton glovesman is yet to keep a clean sheet at the World Cup and his attempt to save Adnan Januzaj’s curler last time out certainly raised some eyebrows.
It would of course represent a huge gamble for Southgate to drop Pickford and start either Stoke City’s incredibly promising Jack Butland or Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope for England’s first knockout clash of the tournament on Tuesday. But where do you stand in this debate, Three Lions fans?
