Everton and England keeper Jordan Pickford, who is nearly a year removed from becoming a certified World Cup hero, returned to his home city of Sunderland, England over the weekend for a night out.

Pickford was born in Sunderland and came up through the Black Cats’ youth academy, so he was probably hoping for a slightly warmer welcome from the people he grew up with. Let it be known that the lads of Sunderland are fickle lads indeed.
