England fans demand ‘drop Jordan Pickford for good’ after Ramsdale wonder save
England fans have demanded that Gareth Southgate drops Jordan Pickford for good after Aaron Ramsdale's wonder save against Italy.
Ramsdale won his second senior cap for the Three Lions on Saturday night at Molineux as he started in Southgate's much-changed line-up. Usual first-choice goalkeeper Pickford was rested for the Nations League fixture, with Ramsdale making the most of his opportunity with a stunning save during the first half to keep the match goalless.
Italy had looked certain to score after a cross made it's way all the way across the penalty area to Sandro Tonali but his effort was brilliantly blocked by Ramsdale's legs.
Fans quickly flocked to social media to laud the save and call for Ramsdale to replace Pickford as England's starting goalkeeper going forward.
One supporter tweeted: "I don't get the Arsenal delusion but Ramsdale is definitely a better keeper than Pickford." Another simply added: "Ramsdale > Pickford."
A third England fan also wrote: "Ramsdale is CLEAR of Pickford blud." Meanwhile, another fan tweeted: "Ramsdale should be England's #1. That's a goal with Pickford in goal."

Manchester United fan and presenter Mark Goldbridge also got involved in the discussion, tweeting: "What a save by Ramsdale! Drop Pickford for good."
Ramsdale's heroics in the England goal kept the sides level during a tight first half, which also saw Mason Mount strike the crossbar with a powerful close-range effort.
Southgate's side had most of the ball after the break against an inexperienced Italian side in a replay of last summer's Euros final.
However, the hosts were unable to carve out many clear cut chances and rarely tested Gianluigi Donnarumma in the visitors' goal.
Following Saturday night's goalless draw, England remain winless after three of their six Nations League matches, having already lost to Hungary and drawn away to Germany.
The Three Lions will conclude the international break on Tuesday night against Hungary at Molineux as they look to move off the bottom of the group before September's final two rounds of matches.
