Jordan Pickford's Reaction To Curtis Jones' Wonder Goal Is Priceless
Jordan Pickford reportedly joked to Curtis Jones that the teenagers wonder goal yesterday was 'a cross.'
Teenager Jones bent in a beautiful strike as a young Liverpool side defeated Everton in the FA Cup third round.
Following the game, Norwegian journalist Jan Aage Fjortoft tweeted that the duo enjoyed a humourous meeting in the tunnel at full-time.
The former footballer said: "I was standing in the corridor between the two dressing rooms at Anfield with the matchwinner Curtis Jones. Jordan Pickford just passed and said to Jones: - Great cross! Love that kind of banter."
The tweet has since been deleted but Jones will surely dispute his strike was a cross.
The midfielder received the ball from Divock Origi outside the box and whipped the ball past a helpless Pickford.
Liverpool fielded a young side in the cup clash and it was Jones who made the difference.

Following the game, he discussed wanting to force his way into Jurgen Klopp's first team plans.
He told BBC Sport per The Mirror,
"It's been frustrating at times being on the bench and then getting a taste on the pitch and then being back on the bench," he said.
"I've been basically begging to come on but hopefully I've topped it off with a good goal," said the academy product.
"I can't sum up my emotions. For me it's huge just being around this team every day and learning from this group of players. There are world-class players all over this team but I think I went out and showed what I could do on the pitch."
Everton, meanwhile, fell to their second defeat under Carlo Ancelotti and they'll be disappointed at the loss to an under-strength Red's side.
The Italian fumed to the press at full-time:
"Honestly in the second half we were not good enough.
"I have not spoken to them yet (after the game), but I am going to speak to them and tell them that (is it is not good enough) yes, I will tell them about this.
"In the second half we were not able to raise the right idea on the pitch, as we did in first half where we had opportunities to score.
"The fact we didn't score affected us in second half. It was not good enough that we lost our intensity in our play, and we didn't create enough opportunities up front."
