England drew 0-0 with Germany last night at Wembley in what was a decent performance by Gareth Southgate’s men against a side many are tipping for World Cup success next year.
The England manager handed full debuts to three players from the off, and one in particular massively impressed the watching crowd and pundits, former Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
The Everton stopper was brilliant in the sticks for the three lions, pulling off a number of top quality saves to deny the visitors and do his chances of becoming the England number one for next year’s World Cup no harm at all.
Sunderland fans were clearly delighted with the performance of their former ‘keeper, with many taking the chance to react to a tweet put out by the official Sunderland twitter account congratulating the young goalkeeper on his performance and full debut.
Here at FLW, we were interested in what Sunderland fans had to say, and there seemed to be plenty of interest in if the appearance meant a bit more cash in the coffers for the club! Here’s a look at how Sunderland fans reacted to Pickford’s debut for England…
He will be England first choice for years

Do we get a follow-on payment as a result? (Asking for a friend – ES) ????

Pretty sure we get a few million for this as an add on. Hopefully we can use it in January when Big Sam returns

Couldn’t agree more. Should still be one of our own. What a prospect to let go because of our inept management.
