England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford won the Golden Glove award at the 2021 European Championships after guiding his country to a runner-up finish in the tournament.

The Everton shot-stopper had conceded just two goals in the competition, racking up five clean sheets in the process. He was one of England's best players, having been criticised by several pundits ahead of EURO 2020.

His closest competitors were Belgium's Thibaut Courtois and Italian shot-stopper Gianluigi Donnarumma, who had kept three clean sheets each.
