Pickford’s post-match reaction to the incident was just as hilarious:

Despite the former Sunderland man’s momentary lapse in concentration, the 24-year-old looked in fine form today. Pickford launched the counter attack’s that led to England’s first two goals against Spain. Pickford’s distribution was second to none tonight.

Also Pickford marshalled the defence expertly at times and when called upon pulled out some difficult saves to prevent Spain from coming away with anything from the match.
