For over half a decade now, Jordan Pickford has been billed as the next great English goalkeeper.
He represented the national team from the U-16 side onward, was playing senior football at age 17 and became a Premier League starter by 22.
Pickford was Sunderland's best performer in his first season as a regular in 2016/17, and he was even named to WhoScored?'s EPL team of the season in spite of the Black Cats' relegation.
It’s been nearly half a year since The18 dropped a Spotify playlist. It’s about time to dust off the records and pump out another 18-track playlist banger. This summer’s Best Soccer Songs Mix has some of 2021’s biggest hits, along with a couple songs I promise you haven’t heard before.
Leave it to Fox to fuck up the biggest soccer match of the year. The 2021 Copa América final was supposed to be on cable on FS1, a baseball game getting the network broadcast on FOX. But the match was nowhere to be found on FS1 as it kicked off, thrown to the obscure FS2 because of another boring baseball game going long.
Then things really got bad.
