Jack Butland looks set to miss out on a place in England’s Euro 2016 squad after it was confirmed he sustained a fractured ankle in Saturday’s friendly against Germany.

The Stoke City goalkeeper was taken off on a stretcher shortly before half-time of England’s 3-2 win in Berlin, after appearing to hurt himself while making a save.

Butland, who was standing in for injured first-choice keeper Joe Hart, was visibly hampered by the injury in conceding Toni Kroos’ opening goal.

Scans have now confirmed a fracture that appears certain to rule him out of the rest of the Premier League season, while also throwing his participation at the European Championship into major doubt.
