England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has been spotted ‘getting the rave on’ after his heroic Euro 2020 performances.
Gareth Southgate’s side were defeated by Italy a heartbreaking penalty shootout on Sunday evening but Pickford gave it his all.
The 27-year-old saved two penalties and didn’t deserve to be on the losing side at all.
After arriving home, Pickford was thrown a party with his family and friends – with the footage looking hilarious.

Pickford can be seen on someone’s shoulders, with his top off, singing along to Cher’s smash hit ‘Believe’.
Members of his family and friends can also be seen wearing Pickford masks and singing along.
The Everton man only conceded twice at the tournament and the first didn’t come until semi-final victory over Denmark.
He was one of England’s top performers at the tournament and the personification of confidence.

Southgate lauded Pickford for proving the doubters wrong and having an incredible tournament.
PerThe Boot Roomhe explained: I thought he had a brilliant tournament. There are a lot of players in the category.
“The number of times I’ve sat here and his place is questioned. He’s constantly delivered for us and this tournament was his best run of performances for England. He should be hugely proud of that.
“He could do little more in terms of keeping the ball out of our net and he had a really outstanding tournament.”
