'Embarrassed' Pickford tipped for England axe by former Three Lions striker Phillips

Gareth Southgate will have a big decision to make ahead of Euro 2020 next year if the Toffees' shot-stopper continues to make big mistakes

Everton's Jordan Pickford needs to find a consistency to his game if he is to retain his position as England's first choice goalkeeper, according to former striker Kevin Phillips, with the 26-year-old having come under increasing pressure following more high-profile mistakes.

Pickford's performances have been under the microscope for some time, but the Sunderland-born shot-stopper hit the headlines yet again when the Toffees fell to a 3-0 defeat against Wolves at Molineux last weekend.
