Projecting England’s 26-Man Roster for the 2022 World Cup

GK: Jordan Pickford (Everton)

Despite the fact Aaron Ramsdale may be an innately more talented keeper with a higher ceiling, Jordan Pickford has cemented himself within Gareth Southgate’s starting XI. He’s proven himself to be reliable in big moments, and despite the dip in form from Everton this past year, Pickford remained relatively rock-solid (all things considered). Perhaps most importantly, he’s earned the trust of his teammates and manager over the course of this cycle.
