Football Friends: Crocked England 'keeper invites Rob Elliot around to watch Euro 2016
It has been a tough couple of days for goalkeepers hoping to play at this summer's European Championships.
Stoke City's in-form goalkeeper - and 2015/16 Fantasy Football favourite - Jack Butland was ruled out of the tournament after fracturing his ankle during England's 3-2 win over Germany on Saturday and he was joined on the sidelines by Ireland's Rob Elliot yesterday.
Elliot injured his knee during Ireland's 2-2 draw with Slovakia and has been ruled out for six months. Both 'keepers are undoubtedly distraught at missing such a massive competition but Butland has reached out to his Premier League counterpart with an offer to watch the Euros together this summer.
With an expanded tournament of 24 teams taking place this year, Butland has the right idea in getting an appropriate venue ready for the upcoming marathon of football.
mate, gutted for you and wish you a solid recovery! you can come round mine and we can watch the euros together! head up mate! @the_dilsh— Jack Butland (@JackButland_One) March 30, 2016
