England punched their ticket to the semi-finals after a penalty shootout in which the Three Lions goalkeeper stood out.

Before Novak Djokovic’s match saw celebrations on the court, in the locker rooms and even on Wimbledon’s center court, the Brits had work to do, particularly their goalkeeper Jordan Pickford. Gareth Southgate’s men, handled by the valiant Swiss, came very close to elimination before making the difference, as in 8th place.

This time the match was decided by penalty shootout. Jordan Pickford, an expert on the subject, put the English on the right track by deflecting Manuel Akanji’s first-half effort. Its cessation was not due to chance or right intuition.

The Three Lions goalkeeper had actually used his water bottle to try and stop an opponent’s shot. “Akanji: Dive Left,” which was written for this first repelled strike. When we read a little closer, we realize that the English goalkeeper was correct in 3 of 4 penalties, if he was too low on Xherdan Shaqiri’s effort, and he didn’t trust his water bottle when facing Fabian Schar.
