Tyson Fury retained his WBC title after an 11th round knockout of Deontay Wilder. England put five past Andorra as goalkeeper Sam Johnstone registered an assist.
Sam Johnstone began his career in the Manchester United academy and was with the club for seven years. However, he spent all seven of those seasons on loan at seven clubs across the English Football League.
Everywhere but United
Johnstone joined the Manchester United Academy in the 2010/11 season, but was on his way to Oldham Athletic on a one-month loan the following July. On September 9, 2011, Johnstone hooked up with Scunthorpe United on a similar deal and the loan was extended until January 2012.
In March 2013, Johnstone went to Walsall on loan for the remainder of the season. He kept consecutive clean sheets in his first three games. However, a few months later, Johnstone was moving again, this time to Championship side Yeovil Town. This was for a three-month spell.
A year after joining Doncaster, Johnstone joined his hometown club, Preston North End, on loan until the end of the 2014/15 season. He kept a clean sheet in the 2015 play-off final against Swindon to help his side earn promotion to the Championship.
The following season, Johnstone was called up by the Red Devils to join them on their pre-season tour of the United States. He played as a second choice keeper and, after rumours of David De Gea going to Real Madrid, Johnstone was named on the bench for the first game of the 2015/16 season against Tottenham Hotspur. After De Gea committed his future to United, Johnstone rejoined North End on loan.
On January 5, 2017, Johnstone was on the move again as he joined Championship side Aston Villa on loan until the end of the 2016/17 season. This was extended to cover all of the subsequent campaign too.
Becoming a Baggie
On July 3, 2018, Johnstone left Manchester United and signed a four-year contract with West Bromwich Albion for a reported fee of around £6.5million.
Despite criticism from fans, Johnstone was a rock in goal for the Baggies, particularly in the 2019/20 season when he kept 14 clean sheets to help his side gain automatic promotion to the Premier League.
The club were relegated during the 2020/21 campaign, but Johnstone continued to produce in goal for West Brom.
His fine form earned him the Supporter's Player of the Year and Player's Player of the Year, while his work away from the game gained him a PFA Community Champion Award.
Johnstone and England
Johnstone played for England at Under-16, Under-17, Under-19 and Under-20 levels, before finally gaining his first full England cap.
Johnstone failed to play any minutes at all at Euro 2020, though, with Jordan Pickford firmly in possession of the No. 1 jersey for the Three Lions.
Sam Johnstone's personal life
Johnstone comes from a soccer family, with his dad, Glenn Johnstone, having played for Preston North End in the 1990s. His younger brother Max joined the Manchester United youth team before signing for Scottish club St Johnstone in July 2019.
Sam Johnstone's net worth
Johnstone's four-year contract at West Brom was worth £6.7million, which works out at £32,500 a week.
