Birmingham keeper Butland enjoying Olympics campaign

Birmingham City goalkeeper Jack Butland is enjoying his Olympics campaign with Team GB.

Butland has continued to earn rave reviews in each of the three Group A matches.

He said: "It has been meteoric, a fast roller-coaster ride. I had two spells at Cheltenham and they stood me in good stead for the Under-21 games.

"I would like to think that helped me get into the England squad. I really worked hard during the season.

"This tournament has been fantastic from day one. It has been a while since there was a major tournament here.

"The country has grasped that and looking forward to watching all these players play.

"Hopefully we can go a long way in this tournament and I can push on again."
