A number of West Brom supporters have been hailing Sam Johnstone following an exceptional save on England duty over the weekend.
The Baggies may have been relegated back to the Championship last season, but the 28-year-old was one of the few positives to take from the campaign. He was arguably one of the Premier League’s standout players in his position, producing great consistency between the sticks.
Would Wilder be a good appointment for West Brom?
Johnstone’s form has been rewarded with a place in England’s Euro 2020 squad and he started Sunday’s 1-0 win over Romania, making his debut for the Three Lions in the process.
Not only did the 28-year-old keep a clean sheet, he also made a magnificent save in the second half, ensuring England got the win at Middlesbrough’s Riverside Stadium.
West Brom fan laud Johnstone brilliance
West Brom gave a shoutout to the goalkeeper’s moment of brilliance on their official Twitter account, excitedly posting “WHAT. A. SAVE.” followed by the heart-eyes emoji.
These Baggies fans replied to the tweet to heap praise on Johnstone, having produced a memorable moment on a proud day for him.
“Sam Johnstone doing @samjohnstone50 things“
“England’s future number 1“
“Lifetime contract 100k a week“
“Done himself proud“
