Marcus Rashford Shines in England's Last Warm-Up Game

Our World Cup countdown continues as we look at the 2014 quarter-finalists                                       Our World Cup countdown continues as we look at the 2014 quarter

England play Costa Rica in an global friendly before the World Cup 2018 in Russian Federation.

Substitute Welbeck made certain of the win 14 minutes from time, though, diving to head home Dele Alli's cross, as England earned a vociferous send-off from the Leeds crowd before their opening match in Russian Federation against Tunisia on June 18.

Southgate said he was "really pleased" with England's final World Cup preparations and the squad had avoided any serious injuries.

Gareth Southgate made eight changes to the side that beat Nigeria 2-1 at Wembley on Sunday and it was Marcus Rashford that put the home side ahead after 12 minutes when his stunning long-range strike fizzed past Keylor Navas. "That is epitomised by the three lads that have been with us on standby with their outstanding professional attitude".

Welbeck maintained his fine worldwide scoring record (16 goals in 39 games) by hunkering down low to divert Dele Alli's misplaced shot in off the far upright...

After facing Tunisia, they face Panama on June 24 before a potentially huge clash with Belgium on June 28.

One change to his side that Southgate confirmed on Wednesday is that Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland will start ahead of Everton's Jordan Pickford, who has been handed the No. 1 shirt.

So now we want to know how the regime did it, and most importantly, who else helped the regime to achieve that goal. Trump added that he hoped someday US relations with Kim's secretive Pyongyang government could be normalized.

Love it when England play at different grounds.

Despite scoring a second against Costa Rica after the break, England let their opponents back into the game on Thursday night and a better team would have undoubtedly punished them more.

Now, the group is hoping to give the national team a pre-Russia boost as England take on the might of Costa Rica on Thursday evening.

Marcus Rashford's attractive first-half strike helped England secure another win before leaving for Russian Federation. We don't just represent, the South of England but also the North.

It looked like another plodding friendly between England and Costa Rica as the Three Lions get their final outing before heading off to Russian Federation. Mourinho opted to keep an injured Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the club, believing he would provide better back-up as a central striker to Romelu Lukaku than Rashford.

"We could go through 11 of those on the basis of what we saw tonight - and that's critical because we won't progress on 11 players chosen in the first game".
