The Everton goalkeeper created moves for two goals in the game thanks to accurate passing over distance, proving to be an integral part of England's play going forward.
That is a brilliant achievement for any goalkeeper, but a technical study carried out by FIFA on the World Cup shows just how good Pickford is.
The study highlights that Pickford averaged 34 passes a game - a comfortable six over the average at the tournament, and just one fewer than Manuel Neuer - and did it at an accuracy of 77%, again a figure well above the average of 68%.
Pickford's passing distance was notable, too, as 16 of those 34 passes a game were considered 'long', which is a significant figure for an accurate passer.
If there were any remaining doubts that Pickford can pass a ball with the best of them, this should put them to bed.
Everton and England have a real weapon in their arsenal here, and it is one that could come to serve both incredibly well over the coming years.
