Pickford pushed on from his excellent penalty shoot out performance against Colombia with a hat-trick of terrific saves in the second half, ensuring he became the youngest ever goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet in a tournament for England.
“Great result,” said Pickford.
“We knew it was going to be difficult against Sweden, we know what they bring to the party and we managed it very well.
“You’ve got to be ready from the start, which I was, and you’ve got to be alert.
“After I’ve made that first save on about 47 minutes then that was me set for the game.”
