Former West Brom coach Roy Hodgson included the goalkeeper in his stand-by squad for the summer football tournament.
The 19 year old is currently on loan at Cheltenham, where he has made 24 appearances this season.
Butland's surprise inclusion came as Stoke City's Peter Crouch and Aston Villa's Darren Bent both failed to make the squad.
Roy Hodgson is expected to be confirmed as the new England football manager.
The 64 year old interviewed for the post at Wembley on Monday.
