Who will be England's Goalkeeper at Euro 2020?

Over the next few weeks, we are going to be taking a look at who we think will make Gareth Southgate’s squad and who we would put in ourselves. First up, who will be England’s Goalkeeper at Euro 2020?

The Contenders

Dean Henderson (Manchester United)

The big question mark over Henderson has been that he isn’t United’s number one. However, with rumours of De Gea’s departure and Ole’s insistence that he has two number ones, Henderson’s chances have been improved. A late push for Pickford’s number one spot could be on the cards, and if he manages to stay in the team, we would back him to take that spot.
 
Gareth’s verdict – SQUAD
Our verdict – STARTS
 

Sam Johnstone (West Brom)

Johnstone has been a revelation in recent weeks. After briefly losing his spot in the Baggies team, he has come back with a vengeance. He has even bagged himself an assist against Chelsea. However, this return to form has come way too late for him to make an impact in Southgate’s mind.
 
Gareth’s verdict – STAYS HOME
Our verdict – STAYS HOME
 

Alex McCarthy (Southampton)

I don’t know why McCarthy should even be on this list but I’ve taken the contenders from the betting odds. McCarthy hasn’t even managed to keep his place in the Saints side because they lost too many games in a row with him. 
 
Gareth’s verdict – STAYS HOME
Our verdict – STAYS HOME
 

Jordan Pickford (Everton)

Pickford has his critics, sure, but there are no other keepers on this list that suit the way England want to play out from the back more than Pickford. He has had a decent season with Everton and that will be enough for him to keep his starting spot for Gareth Southgate, not for us though…
 
Gareth’s verdict – STARTS
Our verdict – SQUAD
 
Nick Pope (Burnley)
 
Probably the fans’ favourite to start. To be fair, he is probably the best goalkeeper on the list. His form for Burnley, for a few years now, has been superb. However, not entirely his fault as he is not asked to play this way, his distribution is lacking. That is what will cost him a starting spot.
 
Gareth’s verdict – SQUAD
Our verdict – SQUAD
 

Aaron Ramsdale (Sheffield United)

The Blades number one has done himself proud in recent months, despite his side surrendering their Premier League status pretty easily. His form probably won’t count for much, though, with more quality and experience elsewhere.
 
Gareth’s verdict – STAYS HOME
Our verdict – STAYS HOME
