England’s excellent win against Germany at the weekend unfortunately came at a price for Stoke City fans.

Goalkeeper Jack Butland suffered a fractured ankle just before the opening goal to see him stretchered off the pitch in agony after conceding from Toni Kroos’ shot.

Now he has posted a latest update on his injury problem on his official Twitter account.

As England took on the Netherlands at Wembley Butland was recuperating in hospital after undergoing surgery on the problem yesterday.

He had a message for Stoke fans, in which he declared he has had three screws placed in his serious ankle injury:

The injury looks set to rule Butland out for the rest of the current season and Euro 2016.

But he insists that he will be on the mend as soon as possible and that he can return better after this major blow:

Now the Stoke star will need to focus on his recovery ahead of a hopeful return for the start of next season.
