  • Darren Bent unconvinced with Jordan Pickford’s role as England number one

    Former Premier League star Darren Bent has said that he has not been entirely convinced with Jordan Pickford as England’s number one. The 26-year-old has been the Three Lions’ first-choice goalkeeper since November 2017 and over the past two-and-a-half years, he has earned 24 caps under Gareth Southgate.

    Speaking on TalkSPORT, Bent said that he has no question marks over the goalkeeper’s pedigree but insists that the former Sunderland man has struggled for Everton this term. He added that Pickford should benefit from the postponement of the European Championships to 2021 as that would provide him with more time to re-evaluate himself.
