It’s been almost a week since England were cruelly beaten on penalties in the Euro 2020 final, and Jordan Pickford has finally returned home to a heroes welcome.
The goalkeeper had an excellent tournament and despite his heroics in the shoot-out against Italy, was unable to prevent the Three Lions falling to an agonising defeat.
A video captured the moment that he returned to his friends and family, with the Everton man all smiles as Sweet Caroline played in the background.
