Jack Butland has exclaimed his happiness as he has kept his spot in the England squad for the upcoming UEFA Nations League. The Stoke City keeper will have to fight with Everton number one Jordan Pickford and Southampton custodian Alex McCarthy for a place in the starting lineup.
The Potters keeper has had his fair share of injury problems in the past but he managed to deputise Pickford in the 2018 World Cup. Despite getting demoted to the Championship his selection speaks volumes and the 25 year old needs to utilize every opportunity that comes towards him.
It remains to be seen who features in the goal against Spain but the keeper is enjoying the moment as of now. “It’s massively important for me, something I’ve always been proud of.
“It’s a real confidence boost knowing I’m part of it because I really feel we can achieve something great with England and I think I can be a big part of it.
“There’s an added twist now with games where there’s something to play for, not friendlies here and there, and you can’t come away from it thinking we didn’t win but it’s all right.
“These games against top teams are going to prepare us really well for the Euros in a couple of years.”
