Jordan Pickford Curls In A Glorious Strike From A Corner In England Training

Jordan Pickford Curls In A Glorious Strike From A Corner In England Training

By now we're all well aware that Jordan Pickford is incredibly handy with his feet but having seen his incredible strike in training, he should probably now be taking all the set-pieces as well.

England's official Twitter account posted a video of the Everton No.1 taking a corner in training and bending it right into the back of the net with his trusty left peg.

Just look at the curve! Absolutely sensational stuff from Pickford, whose facial expression is pure gold as he trots back inside.

It's essential for the modern goalkeeper to be comfortable with the ball at their feet in addition to being a great shot-stopper and there's no denying that Pickford has that in abundance.

As we saw during his heroic World Cup campaign, Pickford's range of passing is key for the way Gareth Southgate wants his England side to play. He really knows how to get the rave on.

Pickford, meanwhile, has defended the decision to bring record goalscorer Wayne Rooney back into the Three Lions fold for one last hurrah against the United States at Wembley this Thursday.

"It's good for Wazza, good for the nation, and I think it's a good thing all round," the former Sunderland goalkeeper said, as per The Mirror.

"I don't think it's a bad thing at all. A really good idea.

"He is England's highest goalscorer, he nearly beat the caps record and it will be for his 120th cap, so I think as a nation, a lot of other nations do it, so it's great that the boss and the FA have put this on for him.

"He is still a top player. He's not 'Rooney' for nothing. He's a top player, he's gone over there and performed well and he looks like he is enjoying it."
