SUNDERLAND goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has been called up to the England Under-20 squad for next week’s games with Mexico and USA.

The 21-year-old, who recently returned to Wearside after a loan spell at League One outfit Bradford City, has represented England at Under-16, Under-17, Under-18 and Under-19 level.

He has now made the step up to the Under-20s, who are managed by former Watford boss Aidy Boothroyd.

Pickford will compete with Brighton’s Christian Walton for a place in the starting line-up, with England taking on Mexico on Wednesday and USA next Sunday.
