Pickford was the star man for the hosts and was thankful for the support his team got. He told BBC Sport: “I am a very passionate person and it means the world to us to get the result today. Our character and team spirit drove us on today and with the fans behind us like they were it was incredible.
“Now is about today, we will enjoy it but come next week we will focused on the next games. I worked hard all week.
“It is rewarding when you make the saves to help the team out as they help you out as well. It is a team effort and that was my job.”
