England boss Gareth Southgate could turn to goalkeeper he dropped six years ago amid selection crisis before Euro 2024

While Everton's Jordan Pickford is fit and available for England, Southgate admits the situation with the injured Newcastle United stopper Nick Pope and the lack of game time for Arsenal's Aaron Ramsdale and Crystal Palace's Sam Johnstone is not ideal. Therefore, Rangers stopper Butland could come into contention ahead of this summer's European Championships after being dropped by Southgate six years ago.

The Three Lions boss admitted: "It [the goalkeeper shortage] is an issue for us and the situation is up in the air. We have to make sure we’re watching everybody. Jack [Butland] is included in that because he’s playing at a big club and is an experienced goalkeeper. It’s not an ideal situation with Aaron [Ramsdale] not playing, Sam [Johnstone] at the moment not playing and Nick [Pope] injured. We’ll have to see how that plays out."
