Shay Given: Did SSN really speak to Stoke City goalkeeper?

Shay Given was interviewed on Sky Sports News to give his thoughts on Jack Butland’s injury – but was it really the Stoke City goalkeeper on the line?

It was confirmed on Sunday evening that Butland had suffered a fractured ankle in England’s 3-2 win over Germany, likely ruling him out for the rest of the season and putting his participation at this summer’s European Championship in serious doubt.

Soon after, Sky Sports News announced they had Butland’s Stoke team-mate Given on the line, but the speed at which the interview was cut short suggests the channel soon realised they were not in fact speaking to the Republic of Ireland stopper.
