England cruise to win over Costa Rica

Wallace with the Sport Recife team ahead of a Copa Sudamericana clash

Everyone is doing the "floss" dance including a young England mascot, who got blanked by Jordan Henderson.

"Looking at all the changes Gareth made to the team yesterday, and I know it wasn't big opposition but given how well they performed, I don't think he'll pick the same XI for all three group games".

Jack Butland is also expected to start in goal, with other fringe players being given the chance to impress from the start as well.

Rashford's "flip-flap" was among those moments of excitement and earned an eighth-minute corner from which Phil Jones sent a looping header that was tipped over by Costa Rica's star man Keylor Navas.

However, Welbeck also justified his inclusion in Southgate's squad by coming off the bench to seal the win 14 minutes from time as he headed home Dele Alli's cross.

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

The Three Lions have been warming up for the World Cup in Russian Federation with some friendly fixtures and the youngster didn't take long to score for his nation.

Alexander-Arnold was heavily involved, providing England width in their 3-5-2 system in a match they dominated from the start.

He emphasized that this is the development under leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Minister Arun Jaitley. India's economic expansion at 7.7 per cent was significantly higher than China's 6.8 per cent in the January-March period.

Marcus Rashford sent a sold-out Elland Road wild with an outstanding opener that substitute Danny Welbeck added to in a victory more comfortable than the 2-0 scoreline suggested.

While England's World Cup lineup has begun to take shape in Southgate's mind, he said there remained some openings for players who can make an impression.

Tasked with leading the line Rashford, partner-in-crime Jamie Vardy was almost in for a second but was well thwarted by Navas.

The resulting set-piece was met by Harry Maguire, who diverted a free looping header towards the bottom corner, but Bryan Oviedo hacked it off the line.

England's rhythm was then stunted by five quickfire substitutions, including a debut for Burnley's Nick Pope in goal.

Kieran Tripper was amongst them and sent a free-kick just wide, with Danny Rose - the subject of so much pre-match attention after speaking candidly about his depression - directed into the side netting.

"The 23 are all ready to play, that is the most important thing". Alex Iwobi cut the lead in half but it wasn't enough as England emerged victorious at the final whistle.
