  • Global friendly: Rashford shines as England cruise past Costa Rica

England are now playing Costa Rica in their final warm-up match before the 2018 World Cup.

Jordan Pickford is set to start the World Cup after he was given the number one shirt but Butland will have a final opportunity to stake his claim in the worldwide at Elland Road.

Southgate was keen to give all his 23-man squad playing time and there were debuts for Liverpool right back Trent Alexander-Arnold, who started before making way for Kieran Trippier, and Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope, who came on for Jack Butland in the 65th minute.

The Manchester United forward's effort set the Three Lions on their way to victory in their final warm-up match prior to the 2018 FIFA World Cup, with Danny Welbeck sealing the result with a second-half header. BBC say 4%, but should it be higher?

Hopefully it will be the 4-4-2 in a bar beat of Terrier Brass that will inspire England to success against Costa Rica and then the rest of the world in Russian Federation in the next month.

It was Costa Rica's only threat in a dominant first-half display by England.

Capitals clip Golden Knights to capture their first Stanley Cup
The Golden Knights wrap up a storybook year, advancing all the way to the final in their first year of existence. Vegas lost three games in the first three rounds and never lost more than three in a row in the regular season.

One angle to look at is that this game is taking place outside of Wembley.

The game seemed set to finish at 1-0 until Welbeck made the most of his first clear opportunity since coming on, stretching to nod in Alli's clever cross from the left for his 16th England goal, potentially giving Southgate more positive selection headaches ahead of the Tunisia clash in Volgograd.

They've played twice before at Elland Road, drawing 3-3 with Sweden and losing 2-1 against Italy in 2002. Costa Rica are on offer at [9.8] while The Draw is [5.2]. We don't just represent, the South of England but also the North.

Until the team news is confirmed, it's hard to get involved here. Jamie Vardy should start but the 10/11 (Sportsbook) is of limited interest although seven in 21 games for his country is decent, especially as he's been sub in 10 of those.

For Costa Rica, both Bryan Ruiz and Joel Campbell are 4/1 (Sportsbook) to net.

A sold out Elland Road was treated to its first England worldwide since 2002 - and boy did the locals enjoy it.
