Jack Butland 'absolutely devastated' by ankle fracture

Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland says he is "absolutely devastated" after a scan revealed he fractured his ankle during England's friendly win over Germany.

Butland picked up the injury towards the end of the first half of last night's clash in Berlin and was carried off on a stretcher to be replaced by Fraser Forster.

The former Birmingham custodian was hurt moments before Toni Kroos opened the scoring in the 43rd minute.

Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland will start in goal for England in tonight's friendly against Germany in what will be his fourth appearance for the national side.

With first-choice keeper Joe Hart out through injury, the 23-year-old was picked by England boss Roy Hodgson over Southampton's Fraser Forster.

He'll face one of the best opposition goalkeepers in the world in the form of Germany's Manuel Neuer.
