Jordan Pickford, the goalkeeper of Everton, says he never stop improving individual ability for the forthcoming of 2018 FIFA World Cup. As Joe Hart trying to compete for a first-team place at West Ham, Pickford and Stoke’s Jack are likely to grab the number one goalkeeper in Russia. Both of them are hunted by injuries in the past 18 months.
Pickford has become one of the superb footballers for his transfer for £30 million in the summer. He was also a man of the competition in Saturday’s draw at home to Chelsea.
When he was asked about the chances at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the 23-year-old professional football player says, “There is still a long way to go. I have to play for Everton insistently and improve my practical skills on sports fields. The only thing I can do is make sure contributing to the club indomitable. This will be a great experience for me.”
The reason why he cannot think too much about the 2018 FIFA World Cup is the great amount of competitions. He can spare no efforts to get there after experiencing all stuff on and off the pitch. But the critical task is to play at the Saturday match and to obtain a clean sheet.
He believes that there is still a long distance to go and it’s critical to concentrate on hard working. Only through this way, can he grow into a more and more competent and mature professional football player. He has accomplished his first appearances successfully, realizing his dream in person by his unremitting efforts. I would become the 24 at that time, and that will be a great experience.
He always improve his ability even if there is no rewards and applauses. He will improve himself consistently at full blast prior to the looming of 2018 FIFA World Cup. In spite of the desire to being famous and strong, he is unwilling to bear too much pressure for fearing of the negative effects of too heavy pressure. If he is not playing for the England national football team, he will not become a regular of the England side.
