Manager Marco Silva had consoling words for Pickford, and insisted he had no problem with his Liverpool counterpart Jurgen Klopp running onto the pitch in celebration after the victor. "Both teams delivered an unbelievable fight".
Van Dijk said: "If you look at the footage I thought 'What am I doing?' first".
"To be honest I didn't see (Klopp's run)", he said. How can I know what people make of that?

Silva said he was proud of his players and refused to apportion any blame to Pickford.

The teams also met in pool play on Friday with New Zealand winning, 24-7. But that was not before the Cheetahs had taken a 12-10 lead at the break.
"It all changed a little bit (for him), you lose confidence and you don't play from here (touching his stomach) any more".
However, Pickford inexplicably palmed it into the air and onto the crossbar, the ball dropping into the path of Divock Origi, who nodded into an empty net and snatched the win for the Reds, keeping them within two points of leaders Manchester City.
