C:WindowsTempphp4E9E.tmpSaturday night saw an exciting win for England against World Champions Germany. However for former Derby County goalkeeper Jack Butland it was a bitter sweet experience after breaking his ankle.

Butland who played for the Rams on six occasions last season was first choice for England as they took on Germany in Berlin.

Butland had fractured his ankle in the stumble and now looks set to mis out on a trip to the European Championships in just ten weeks times. The ankle could keep Butland out of action for up to three months, so he is unlikely to be fit for the Euro's.
