Neville waxed lyrical about Everton ace Pickford after Euro 2020 display

Gary Nevill has labelled Everton ace Jordan Pickford as England’s best player at Euro 2020.

The former Sunderland man has been sensational for the Three Lions, keeping a clean sheet in each of his four games.

He was roundly praised for his form following England’s win over Germany in the last-16 yesterday.

BBC pundit Rio Ferdinand lauded the shot-stopper for his composure and ever-growing confidence.

Taking to Twitter to react, the former Manchester United ace claimed the 27-year-old was his man of the match from yesterday’s clash. He also praise him for being a ‘different player’ and acknowledged his previous criticism of the ace.

Neville said: “My MOM last night was Jordan Pickford and I also think he’s been England’s player of the tournament so far. I’ve been critical of him with Everton but with England, he’s a different player!”

TBR View: Everton ace Pickford has grown since new year amid praise for Euro 2020 form

Amidst the praise for his form during Euro 2020, Pickford has performed well for Everton since the new year.

His performances for the Blues were second to none, making him one of the only players to end the season on a high note.

Speaking after the win over Arsenal back in April, Carlo Ancelotti claimed the ace’s performance was ‘really good’.

Pickford had a save percentage of over 70%, among the top ten in the division.

It’s great to see everyone has caught up with the displays of the goalkeeper. His form is finally getting recognised as the star looks to turn a corner from his horrible past.
