Everton goalkeeper Pickford facing scan amid Euros concern

Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford's Euros hopes are in doubt.

He is a doubt for England's World Cup qualifiers as he awaits a scan on a rib injury.

Everton's No1 was forced off in the 43rd minute of the club's shock 2-1 home to defeat to Burnley on Saturday.

Pickford, 27, appeared to pick up the injury while attempting to save an effort from Johan Gudmundsson.

He initially played on before young stopper Joao Virginia replaced him to make his Premier League debut.

Boss Carlo Ancelotti admitted his injury is similar to one he picked up earlier in the campaign which kept him sidelined for three weeks.

Pickford will now undergo scans but the Italian boss admitted he isn't overly concerned that it's serious.

He said after the game: "We don't know how bad the injury is but he had the same problem in the past month when he was out for some games. He is going to have a scan on Monday.

"I hope that Jordan can recover soon. We have to check and see.

"I don't think it is going to be a big problem. It is true he was out for some games before but I think he can recover soon."
