Pickford is England's No.1 - Robinson
Paul Robinson is adamant Everton's under-pressure goalkeeper Jordan Pickford should still be England's first choice.
Pickford played a huge role in England's run to the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup but he has struggled to replicate those types of performances this season, leaving doubts over his selection for the national side.
The 25-year-old made a huge blunder in the 1-0 defeat to Liverpool earlier in the campaign, while he was at fault on two occasions in Saturday's 3-2 defeat to Newcastle United at St James' Park.
With Gareth Southgate naming his Three Lions squad on Wednesday for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Montenegro, questions are being raised about whether Pickford will still be number one.
However, Robinson, who was capped 41 times for England, has backed the Everton shot-stopper to keep the gloves.
Asked if he's still England's No 1, he told Sky Sports: "Yes he is, definitely. I don't think he's playing the best that he's ever played, clearly I don't think he's at the top of his game because he's set himself such a high bar.
"I think he made an error in the Merseyside derby in November, and I think that impacted him a little bit. It was the first time he'd made a high-profile error, where people have actually started scrutinising him and are now watching him.
"I genuinely think he's England's No.1 goalkeeper at the moment. Is he the best in the Premier League? There are probably a few goalkeepers in better form than him at the moment. But is he England's No.1 for the next internationals? Absolutely, yes he is. He's earned that right."
