Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has been called up to the England Under-21 squad for this month’s clash with Switzerland.
The Black Cats star has been included in Gareth SouthgateÂ’s squad for the the UEFA U21 European qualifier in Thun on March 26.
Pickford has five caps for the Under-21s and has been an ever-present in the current qualifying campaign with England topping their group.
Pickford has conceded just one goal for Southgate’s side and has impressed many observers.
The highly-rated prospect signed a new contract earlier this year that ties him to the club until 2020 and many believe he will challenge for the number one shirt in the very near future.
