Burley tips Gordon for greatness

Published Add your comment

George Burley believes Craig Gordon has the potential to be the best goalkeeper in Europe.

The Sunderland goalkeeper is one of the few experienced campaigners left in Burley´s team to face the Czech Republic on Friday following six withdrawals and several regulars omitted from the original squad through injury.

Burley said: "I know Craig from our time at Hearts and he was absolutely superb for me. He faces a big test at Sunderland and he´s come through his first season very well. He´s still maturing but already he´s one of the top keepers in Europe."
