pickford is too short
and took the piss out of the massive dive for the jizinureye goal last week. said a proper sized keeper would just have stood there and caught it!

What Courtois said:

“The goalkeeper is 10cm smaller than me,”

“I would have caught it.

“He was too busy throwing his legs in the air.”

I'm not sure about him being too short, I think it was just poor positioning, much like Rashford's 'wonder strike' in the warm up game against Costa Rica. Navas was just badly positioned, half a yard back towards his goal and he catches Rashford's effort no problem.

Short goalkeepers will always struggle yes, but that's in terms of crosses into the box and such. Given was also short but he was awesome of the line. The video you posted shows Pickford not being positioned well rather than being short.

edit

short in goal keeping terms I mean. 1,85 isn't short elsewhere in the world. Well in Basket perhaps.

I take it from that he's accusing Pickford of doing it for the camera?

yes. the old hollywood dive. nigel spink used to be the master of them back in the day. the dive when he’s beaten by the boot up field from the canadian keeper is identical.

Pickford is like aJoe Hart reborn - Has time to Iron out his short comings. Joe never did sadly. Pickford is decent on the deck tbf.

Well, hopefully for Pickford his dandruff doesn't clear up.

IMO Pickford is England's biggest weakness. He regularly makes dives for the cameras even if the shot is clearly going well wide. When he parries a shot it's into dangerous areas.

I am hoping he twists an ankle. He's not going to get dropped for poor performances, Southgate is too loyal, even for players out of form.

Japan had a dodgy keeper he got found out I hope Pickford is not going to push everything to Falcao who is a wily fooker.
