Butland, eligible for the next qualifying campaign, believes the disappointment will benefit England moving forward.
"Personally, I think I will learn more from this experience than had we done a lot better and maybe even gone onto win the tournament," he said.
"For me, after a very long season and last year, it is definitely about time management, managing my time and making sure I am mentally set.
"That is something that I have learned and I am sure there will be a lot to learn from the other lads' point of view, too.
"In the future, people will be able to look back at this and know what has gone wrong and from learn from it."
