England's preparations for a high-profile clash with Germany were dealt a serious blow as goalkeeper Jack Butland fractured his finger in a training session and had to withdraw from the squad as a result.

Butland has played six times for his country, with his last appearance coming in England's final World Cup Qualifier in Lithuania last month, a game which they won 1-0.

Stoke are now likely to seek compensation from the FA for Butland's lay-off which could see him miss crucial matches against Brighton, Crystal Palace, Swansea, Burnley and West Ham.

He is widely viewed as Joe Hart's successor as No 1 and has impressed this season despite Stoke now being just three points above the Premier League relegation zone.

In March 2016, Butland sustained a broken ankle during a friendly with Germany, an injury which kept the former Derby County man out for over a year.

Most fans and plenty of pundits had called for Southgate to select Butland as England's first-choice goalkeeper with the World Cup less than a year away but the manager has to make a definitive decision.

But now Butland will have to wait for the next round of worldwide dates in March 2018 for his chance to impress, just three months before the World Cup begins in Russian Federation.
