Birmingham City's Jack Butland has made history tonight as he became the youngest goalkeeper for England.

Aged 19 years and 158 days, Butland has beaten the record of Billy Moon who was 19 and 222 days when he played against Wales at Crewe in 1888.

It is a fantastic achievement for a player whose only senior experience came in League Two for Cheltenham last season.

Butland was then called off his holiday to act as number three goalkeeper by Roy Hodgson at Euro 2012, before featuring in all four matches, plus the pre-tournament friendly against Brazil, in Great Britain's Olympic campaign.
