Jordan Pickford Reveals The Cheeky Message He Had For Jordan Henderson After Colombia Shoot-Out

Jordan Pickford Reveals The Cheeky Message He Had For Jordan Henderson After Colombia Shoot-Out

Jordan Pickford has shared the cheeky message he had for England teammate Jordan Henderson after the country finally experienced winning a World Cup penalty shoot-out.

After going the distance in an intense battle Moscow, the Three Lions prevailed on penalties.

Henderson saw his effort saved by Arsenal's David Ospina but a combination of Mateus Uribe leathering his spot-kick against the bar, and Pickford producing a stunning one-handed save to deny substitute Carlos Bacca - led to Eric Dier giving England a first knockout win in 12 years, while sending Gareth Southgate's side into the quarter finals.

The monumental moment prompted some quite incredible scenes on the pitch, in the stands and across the country back home.

Pickford, meanwhile, was quick to joke with his fellow Mackem Henderson that he had spared his blushes following his miss from 12 yards.

When asked what his first conversation with the Liverpool skipper was, the Everton No.1 revealed:

"Aye, he said 'Well done, you fellow Mackem'. I said, 'Jesus, I've helped you out there, Lad!'

"That's team-mates isn't it? A bit of craic. We're together, when one goes down we've got to pick them back up."

Henderson even offered an apology to everyone back home after being the only player to miss, but anyone who has the courage to step up in such a high-pressure scenario deserves a lot of credit.

Yet still, the 28-year old admits he is indebted to his namesake for his penalty-saving heroics.

"I thanked him and he said, 'The Mackems stick together'," Henderson revealed.

"I can't thank him enough, I'm forever in his debt. He got a bit of criticism last week - undeservedly - so I'm so happy for him to achieve that.

"He made some fantastic saves and I'm delighted for him and for everyone."

Next up, Sweden on Saturday in Samara - one more hurdle to overcome in the quest to bring football back home.
