“I’ll be having an operation to secure the fracture, but I will be back and I’ll be bigger and better than before.”

Stoke chairman Peter Coates admits he feels devastated for Butland.

Coates said: “It’s very disappointing and a huge blow for Jack. There he was, playing for England against Germany in his first full season for the club.

“It doesn’t get much better than that and everything was falling into place for him with the Euros just around the corner.

“Now he won’t be able to go to France and we’re just so sorry for him because he had earned his place in the squad.
