Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland is to undergo a scan today on the ankle injury he sustained 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.

Butland could have put the ball into touch to receive treatment, but chose instead to punt it down field. Germany then claimed possession and raced forward through Real Madrid midfielder Kroos, who beat Butland with a low 25-yard shot at his near post.

Germany made it 2-0 after Mario Gomez headed past Forster, but England staged a stunning recovery with goals from Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy and Eric Dier sealing a dramatic 3-2 win.

Butland thanked people for their support and said he wouldn't 'give up' despite the injury.
