Pickford on why England will never get revenge on Croatia for World Cup exit

Jordan Pickford admits England will never be able to gain revenge on Croatia after their World Cup heartbreak.

England No1 Pickford faces Croatia for the first time since the semi final defeat but insists that, while they must build on the summer, they will never get over the disappointment.

Pickford said: “It would be nice to get one over them but they will always have that they beat us in the semi-final.

“It is another season, another campaign with England and we want to be beating the top teams and they are ranked in the top 10 as well as Spain and we want to be pushing ourselves to beat these teams as part of our progression.

“It was great at one stage and disappointing nearly getting to the final but I think you can learn from those negatives and learn from losing in the semis to progress as a team and individually.

“I son’t think there was much expectation on us before the World Cup from an outside point of view.

“From us we expected a lot from ourselves and we progressed through that tournament and it was about building momentum from the back of that tournament.”
