England Hero Pickford Laughs Off Hand Injury

Jordan Pickford laughed off a hand injury sustained on Saturday, declaring himself “a man, not a mouse” after his man of the match performance in England’s quarter-final victory over Sweden.

The goalkeeper picked up his first clean sheet of the World Cup in England’s 2-0 victory, which sent the nation to the semi-finals for the first time since 1990.

While the Three Lions controlled the match, Pickford was still called upon to make a couple of key saves in order to preserve the victory.

After the game Pickford was spotted with a bandage on his hand, which sparked concerns for the keeper given his importance to the side in the knockout stages.

However, while he admitted the second-half injury was not picked up in the most graceful of manners, he isn’t about to let it stop him.

“It was a daft injury by myself,” Pickford told reporters. “I went to punch the floor and punched my knee, I hurt my thumb. But I’m a man not a mouse. I’m fine. I’ll live another day – it’s only a thumb.”
