Pickford starts for England against Iceland

England 4 - 0 Iceland

Jordan Pickford started in goal for England in their dead rubber game against Iceland in the Nations League at Wembley but Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Michael Keane were unused substitutes.

Gylfi Sigurdsson played no part in this one, with reports that he had returned to Everton already and both Calvert-Lewin and Keane were left on the bench, which will likely please Carlo Ancelotti.

Declan Rice scored the opening goal for England with a nice glancing header off a free-kick after 20 minutes. Mount added a second minutes later while Phil Foden scored a late brace to complete the scoring in a comprehensive 4-0 win for Gareth Southgate's men.

Well, Sigurdsson is definitely not starting for Iceland tonight, as he has returned back to Everton. Don't know the reason for this, as I've not heard if he's injured? Pickford starts again for England.

According to the BBC website Brian, he's returned back to Everton. I think there are two Sigurdsson's in their squad.

Brian there are many Sigurdsson's in Iceland's team. I can guarantee you Gylfi has returned to Everton.

Cheers Rob. 👍 There appears to be one or two more Somethingsons in the squad too.

I'm glad Dom didn't pick up a knock and will return to us in the same condition he left. Southgate can fuck off though.

I noticed a BBC Sport article stating Pickford was an issue for Southgate. The said article then went on to say Pickford had his issues this season and mentioned yet again the season ending tackle on VVD ! It then went onto to state that Pickford has not actually made a mistake contributing to a goal against England whilst Southgate has picked him !! Unbelievable then that Southgate should have an issue with one would think. Total garbage journalism pandering to the RS agenda yet again. Roll on Fulham. COYBs.

Testimony to how far Sigurdsson's fallen when he can't get a game for his national team.
