Jordan Pickford makes howler as Man Utd star Mason Greenwood left with open goal

Jordan Pickford has committed a howler – to gift Mason Greenwood the opener – in a pre-season friendly between Manchester United and Everton.

Pickford returned to Goodison Park as one of England'sEuro 2020 heroes.

The shot-stopper had five clean sheets to his name, and he denied Jorginho and Andrea Belotti in the penalty shoot-out against Italy.

However, he has struggled to convert his international form to the domestic game in recent years.

And Pickford has committed another glaring error when the Toffees took on the Red Devils at Old Trafford in their final warm-up game for the new Premier League season.

Lucas Digne attempted to head the ball back to his keeper early on in the first half.

However, Pickford flapped at the ball, and it spilt right into the path of Greenwood.

The Red Devils striker was left with the easy task of slotting the ball into the open net to gift United the lead early on in the clash.

Pickford almost gave United another goal a couple of minutes later when he spilt Bruno Fernandes' shot, but Anthony Martial was unable to convert the rebound.

Fernandes was able to get on the scoresheet with a phenomenal free-kick just before the half-hour mark.

Harry Maguire netted in between Fernandes and Greenwood as United stormed to an early 3-0 lead before half-time.
