Southall told talkSPORT: "I think looking at the Premier League now he could do [well].
"I thought he did really well [at the World Cup]. The only thing I would question was his kicking because he booted it down the middle and gave away possession I don't know how many times last night.
"His shot stopping was good, his [claiming of] crosses were debatable, but I think he would get away with that in the Premier League, his bravery was good because he came out sliding at people's feet and his handling was decent.
"So yeah I think he would do all right in the Premier League."
