England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was seen ‘praising’ after his heroic performances at Euro 2020.
Gareth Southgate’s side were beaten by Italy in a heartbreaking penalty shootout on Sunday night, but Pickford gave it their all.
After arriving home, Pickford threw a party with his family and friends – with some hilarious footage.
Pickford can be seen on someone’s shoulders, without their top, singing Cher’s hit “Believe”.
Family and friends can also be seen wearing Pickford masks and singing.
The Everton man has only conceded twice in the tournament and the first only came in the semifinals against Denmark.
He was one of England’s best players at the tournament and the personification of confidence.
Fans love that he hasn’t given up on this despite being an established international.
So glad he’s out there having fun. He’s been brilliant this summer and deserves every second.

Southgate praised Pickford for proving the skeptics wrong and putting on an incredible tournament.
According to The Boot Room, he explained: I thought he had made a brilliant tournament. There are a lot of players in the category.
âThe number of times I’ve sat here and his place is in question. He’s consistently up for us and this tournament has been his best run for England. He should be extremely proud of that.
“He couldn’t do more to keep the ball out of our net and he had a really exceptional tournament.”
