Curse is broken: England's dramatic shootout comeback

Unsworth feels Pickford's performances at the World Cup, where he made one brilliant save against Colombia and was a hero in the penalty shoot-out by keeping out Carlos Bacca's spot-kick, is just a continuation of his club form.

There was only the slightest concession to the criticism which followed his failure to keep out Belgium's victor in the group stage - which included critiques of his technique and even his height.

"It was great to see it happen in a penalty shootout because obviously in the past we've got to that stage and unfortunately it hasn't gone well for us", Dan said. "I don't care if I'm not the biggest keeper because it's about being there in the moment and making the save and I was".

He said on Sky Sports: "The Croatia game is going to be difficult, I think it's going to be our hardest test, but when you look at both teams, for me, England have got a lot more than what Croatia have got".

"Personally I've been having a little competition with Nick Pope the goalkeeper".

'This thing about Jordan Pickford, I want to make it clear, I never mocked his height, he is a great goalkeeper.

This year, Prime Day will kick off on July 16th and last for 36 hours, with more than a million deals on offer. Meanwhile, Target is offering a $5 gift card when you spend $25 or more on select household essential items .

More than a quarter of a million fans have signed a petition demanding the World Cup last-16 match between England and Colombia to be replayed.

In just his eighth worldwide appearance, Pickford became the youngest English goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet at the World Cup by flying left and right to deny Marcus Berg and Viktor Claesson before showing his agility by tipping another rising Berg effort over.

Pickford and England will now prepare for Saturday's quarter-final encounter with Sweden, who overcame Switzerland yesterday to reach the last eight.

Against England people said it was better to lose but we won the game, we have confidence in our team'. I thought "I'm going right here" and bang!

"It gives us belief to go into the Sweden game and we will get straight back to business tomorrow". "We are enjoying it and we've got keep doing what we are doing and make the country proud".

"We know the size of the task and we know the difficulty of this task".
