Birmingham keeper Butland eager to avoid comparisons with Man City's Hart

Birmingham City goalkeeper Jack Butland says he's keen to avoid comparisons with Manchester City's Joe Hart.

Team GB No1 Butland gaffed during last night's Olympics defeat to South Korea.

Before the game, he said: "I enjoyed being part of the England set-up because I gained so much experience and hopefully that will continue.

"But I am still only 19 and I need to play games before I can ever think about testing Joe because he is one of the best keepers in the world at present.

"All I want to do at the moment is enjoy this Olympic experience and see where it takes me."
