Jordan Pickford's Old Tweets Are So Good, They're Going Viral
We're not sure what's better; Jordan Pickford's performance in goal against Colombia or his old Tweets?
Sure, he produced a stunning finger-tip save in normal time AND saved a penalty in the shootout, but Tweets dating back from 2012 asking for a Sky box in his room are just gold.
Gareth Southgate chose Pickford as his No.1 for the World Cup. And against Colombia, he starred between the sticks helping his country reach the next round.
His heroic outing inspired a lot of congratulatory Tweets.
People even went the extra mile to unearth his old Tweets and it makes for hilarious reading.

Pickford, 24, graduated from Sunderland's youth academy before eventually breaking into the first team.
After a breakout 2016/17 campaign, he sealed a transfer to Everton and has since become England's main man in goal.
What a LAD.
