Jack Butland became England's youngest-ever goalkeeper earlier this evening.

The Blues Academy product started and played the first 45 minutes of the Three Lions' international friendly against Italy in Switzerland.
At the age of 19 years and 158 days, the Bristolian beat the 124 year record held by Old Westminsters' Billy Moon by 64 days. Butland departed the game with the score at 1-1.
The Team GB international will now return to club duty where he'll be in line to make his senior Blues debut against Charlton Athletic at St. Andrew's on Saturday.
