Courtois has mocked former Sunderland goalkeeper Pickford for failing to keep out Adnan Januzaj’s winner during the World Cup game between Belgium and England last week.
The goal proved to be the only of the match, as the Red Devils got the better of the Three Lions 1-0 to progress to the last-16 stage of the World Cup as group winners.
Chelsea goalkeeper Courtois - who earns £100,000 per week as salary according to Spotrac.com - has mocked Everton ace Pickford for failing to save the effort from Januzaj.
The Times quotes the Belgium international goalkeeper as saying: “The goalkeeper is 10cm smaller than me. I would have caught it. He was too busy throwing his legs in the air.”
Over the course of the 90 minutes last week, Belgium were the better team and deservedly picked up all three points against England.
Roberto Martinez’s side will face Japan in their World Cup last-16 this evening, while the Three Lions will take on Colombia for a place in the quarter-finals on Tuesday evening.
Both Belgium and England are expected to go through, but you just never know given how the World Cup has panned out so far.
