The former St Robert of Newminster pupil was devastated as England lost last night’s final, despite him saving two of the Italian penalties.

Pickford has been a star of the national side’s campaign, not conceding a single goal throughout the group stages and right through to the semi-final against Denmark.

The run was enough to earn the Academy of Light graduate the tournament’s Golden Glove for most clean sheets.

After last night’s shattering loss, his wife Megan Davison posted a photo of the 27-year-old on Instagram and said: "No words to say how proud I am of you and everything you have achieved, what a tournament. Now lets get home for our baby boy after six long weeks."

Her followers were quick to chime in with agreement, with hundreds of comments praising Pickford’s performance in the tournament.

"He’s a hero,” one Instagram commented while another wrote: “He has been absolutely class.”

The 25-year-old responded and liked posts praising Pickford, including one declaring him as 'Made in Sunderland' before commenting, "We're so happy to have him home."
