Germany keeper Manuel Neuer has revealed that he is an admirer of his England counterpart Jordan Pickford.
The duo will be meeting on Tuesday night in the Euro 2020 round of 16 and while the Bayern Munich shot-stopper is considered one of the best in his position, he had high praise for Pickford who has constantly been criticized by his fans and pundits.
“Jordan Pickford is a great goalkeeper. He can kick very long balls and this can be a threat to our defensive line. You have to stay very focused, especially deep.
“He talks a lot to his teammates in front of him. He’s very communicative, very fast, and agile. I can only say positive things about him,” Neuer said ahead of their game against England.
