As an aside, we saw completely different approaches to PK's by the goals--Pickford set up like his pants were on fire and Donnarumma was a stoic.  Pickford reminded me of fans behind a basket when an opposing player is taking a free throw while Donnarumma was laser focused.

Pickford is annoying as hell to watch. Looked like a guy with ADD and Tourette’s. Was hoping one of his teammates would slap him tell him to calm the fock down

Pickford is a clown. He overacts during penalties. He is over the top with celebrations and chatter after saves. 

Personally, I want a goalie, pitcher, and QB who is more stoic and in control. 

It feels like he is control and unfazed by the moment. Teammates feed off of that confidence.

So you are asking Pickford to ba a different person than he is, to suit your tastes. Guess you would have passed on him if you were choosing a Goalie for your team. If so, you would have passed on a helluva of a goalie!

Each goalie gave up one goal and blocked 2 kicks in PKs.  Just saying.

Glad Italy won but Pickford did a fine job and that's all that matters, not his antics.

Shamsman, when did I say Pickford should be a different person to please me. I am saying I do not like players at certain positions who go overboard with the antics.

That is just me. And I would (with prejudice) pick Donnarumma because of his demeanor. And I would still have managed to come up with a pretty good goalie anyway.

I meant for England.
