‘Butland to get the nod’ – Banks
Banks, 79, would prefer to see Stoke keeper Butland start at the World Cup in Russia next summer.
The 24-year-old missed England’s friendly draws with Germany and Brazil last month with a broken finger and is yet to return for the Potters.
“I think Jack Butland is a really good goalkeeper,” said Banks.
“He’s been unlucky that he had that injury and broke his finger, because I am sure he was going to be playing in at least one of those friendlies.”
Banks hopes Butland will get a chance to impress boss Gareth Southgate when England face Netherlands and Italy next March.
“If he gets a chance in these next two friendlies and plays well, I think he will look to play him (at the World Cup),” he added.
