This is how Hitchin's Victoria pub celebrated England-Colombia penalty shootout win

Grant SmithJul 08, 2018

Thibaut Courtois has clarified his comments on the situation regarding Jordan Pickford following Belgium's 2-1 win over Brazil in the World Cup quarter-finals.

"We are running out of the adventure at the World Cup, but we are leaving with a clear conscience that we gave it everything on the field".

The pair could yet meet again in the World Cup final with England to face Sweden on Saturday for the chance to reach the final four.

"Me boy is a fuckin' hero", he shouts repeatedly at the screen, pointing to Pickford buried under a pile of jubilant England bodies.

"I always enjoy my football".

Former Tottenham striker Mido believes that Kyle Walker should be dropped for the upcoming quarter final against Sweden, and replaced by Spurs defensive midfielder Eric Dier. "But the saves Jordan made today at critical times, and his distribution in picking out [Kieran] Trippier with a reverse pass - we need goalkeepers of that ilk moving forward". I want to make that clear, ' the 26-year-old told the BBC.

Yet a moment of indecision in the second half led to Pickford momentarily losing his cool and attempt to thump the turf in frustration.

After the match, Courtois was quoted as commenting on Pickford's height as the reason why he only managed to get a hand on Januzaj's match victor, which the Everton goalkeeper later replied to following England's win over Colombia in which he saved a penalty in the shootout.

"It was a daft injury by myself", he said.

"I went to punch the floor and ended up punching my knee and hurt my thumb".

"It's hard when you miss and nothing can be said that's going to make it alright but it's not about me, it doesn't really matter now, we won and that's the main thing". It was a bit of anger. But I'm a man not a mouse. I kept a clean sheet because all the work I do in training is to showcase on match day.
