Pickford, 27, has been the regular choice during the five-year reign of Three Lions' chief Gareth Southgate.
But 23-year-old Ramsdale has surprised many by shining so quickly for the Gunners after his £32million switch from relegated Sheffield United.
Pickford told the BBC: "He's a great lad, Rammers, and I'm delighted that he's flying.
"I see the games and he's making worldies against Leicester!
"But that's what you want. He's your team-mate, he's your friend.
'You don't want them not going well, you want them to be in a good moment.
"I think that's what we all want as a nation – people doing well for each other."
