David Seaman: Jordan Pickford relishing chance to prove people wrong

England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford saves a penalty from Colombia's Carlos Bacca during the FIFA World Cup 2018, round of 16 match at the Spartak Stadium, Moscow.

Pickford, who is 6 feet 1 inch (185 centimetres) tall, had been criticised for failing to save Adnan Januzaj's victor when Belgium beat England 1-0 last Thursday top Group G.

"I look forward to them as a goalkeeper, I get excitement from it". It's hard when you miss and nothing can be said that's going to make it alright, but it's not about me.

"After I made that first save from Marcus Berg with the header that was me set for the rest of the game", Pickford said on Saturday. "I want to make that clear", Courtois said after his own stellar performance against Brazil helped Belgium reach the semi-finals.

World Cups do have a habit of raising the stock of those who do well in them, and the maestro is certainly on the receiving end of a complete national re-evaluation of his ability.

For a match England largely controlled in winning 2-0, the fact Pickford was named man-of-the-match underlined his contribution to ensuring the Three Lions are still involved in the closing stages.

They became more rare as the number of USA troops shrunk afterward, and as the military coalition added security precautions. Army Sgt. 1st Class Mihail Golin, 34, was killed in a firefight with ISIS fighters in eastern Afghanistan on January 1.

The weight of that underperformance had to be dealt with at some point, while England also, against Colombia, had to recover from the blow of conceding an injury-time equalising goal which took the tie to 1-1, extra time and penalties.

"I only said that because he got a touch, maybe I would have saved it because I'm 15cm taller than him - I never mocked his height because I know he's a great goalkeeper".

"I've got a feeling (England) will go through comfortably".

After the match, Colombia captain Radamel Falcao hit out at the officiating, telling reporters: "I found it peculiar that they put an American referee in this instance... to tell you the truth, the process leaves a lot of doubts".

"It doesn't matter how many caps we've got as youngish players".

"It was a different type of game today but we don't want to be going into a penalty shoot-outs every game", he said.
