The former Sunderland shot-stopper may face an even busier evening against Croatia in Moscow on Wednesday where England will attempt to reach a first World Cup final since they won the tournament in 1966.

And Campos, who made 130 appearances for Mexico and featured at the 1994 and 1998 World Cups, has been impressed by Pickford's displays.

"Talking about the best goalkeepers there are some, like the English one ," he told reporters.

"He made some saves that are rarely seen and those are the ones that allow you to progress in the tournament.

"Some others did so well in the quarter-finals. I saw the match of Belgium and the balls that the goalkeeper saved in the last moments.

"Also, the French one did well."
