Burnley goalkeeper Nike Pope is enjoying the rivalry between the three goalkeepers in the England World Cup squad.
Nevertheless, Pope was happy to have received the opportunity to don the Three Lions jersey against Costa Rica yesterday.
"When you come off the bench as a goalkeeper, for the boys in front [on the pitch] it is important you show confidence, so I was pleased," Pope told Sky Sports News.
"I had a heads-up that I would play some part so it was nice to prepare myself mentally and get ready to go.
"That [goalkeeper rivalry] helps push us all to be better and that's the way it should be. That's what's best for the England national team and us as individuals.
"It's great to have that rivalry between us and the competition that there is."
