Everton keeper Pickford: France surely are worried about England

Jordan Pickford has told his England teammates they must grab their opportunity at the World Cup.

The Three Lions are set to take on the reigning world champions France in the quarter finals.

The two European heavyweights go head to head on Saturday, with Pickford confident his team can get the job done.

Everton star Pickford said, “[France are] Reigning champions, they've got Mbappe, other great players, it's going to be tough opponents, tournament football and you might not get another chance to beat France, and to beat them in the quarters would be massive for this team.

“They've got to be worried about us as well, our threat in attack and we've got players who come off the bench as well.

“We've had the experiences of the World Cup, the Euros, those disappointments and we've been through those and learnt a lot from them because the defence is basically the same and we've come through it together."
