It is scarcely believable, but England find themselves in a World Cup semi-final. To get here, it’s taken Jordan Pickford, set pieces, penalties, and some magic, but in the end nobody will care, and whatever happens now is gravy. This World Cup has been a resounding success for the Three Lions, but you start to wonder if there’s not a bit of destiny about our good lads.

Jordan Pickford has been the best goalkeeper in Russia. His distribution is brilliant, and against Colombia and Sweden he produced a series of some of the most ridiculous saves you will ever see. England may need to advance today for Pick to have a true shot at the Golden Glove, but he’s the frontrunner now that Thibaut Courtois has been eliminated.
England: Pickford, Walker, Stones, Maguire; Trippier, Henderson, Lingard, Dele Alli, Young; Sterling, Kane
