It is understood the injury, which he suffered after falling awkwardly when gathering the ball, could require surgery.

The setback for Butland, 23, is a further keeper blow for Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson and club side Stoke’s chances of qualifying for the Europa League.

His No.1, Manchester City’s Joe Hart, was absent from his squad for the Germany match and Holland friendly Tuesday night after sustaining a calf injury in the Manchester derby eight days ago.
