England cruise to win over Costa Rica

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

Pope, the former Ipswich Town youngster who rebuilt his career with Bury Town before ultimately moving to Burnley, came on as a second-half substitute for Jack Butland as England beat Costa Rica 2-0 in their final friendly outing ahead of the World Cup.

Navas was representing Costa Rica at Elland Road as they faced England in a World Cup warm-up match.

Rashford scored with a handsome long-range shot to set England on their way to their second victory this week as they prepare for the Group G clash with Tunisia in Volgograd on June 18.

In England's last match before their tournament opener against Tunisia in 11 days time, Manchester United's Rashford was the star of a much-changed side in Leeds.

Danny Welbeck headed in the second goal to seal the victory after manager Gareth Southgate rested a host of players including captain Harry Kane.

Marcus first came on to the scene doing just that having scored in several of his debuts and there's hope he can be talismanic for Gareth Southgate's side.

The 26-year-old former West Suffolk College student forced his way into Gareth Southgate's squad for Russian Federation after a stunning season at Turf Moor, having only made his Premier League debut in September following an injury to team-mate Tom Heaton.

England beat Nigeria on Saturday 2-1 with Southgate trying out his three at the back formation, which Alexander-Arnold could be a vital part of in the right wingback role.

Real Madrid goalkeeper Navas was completely caught out moments later, though, as Rashford unleashed a powerful drive from 25 yards that dipped perfectly over him and into the top corner for his third global goal.

"He's a Man United player so he got booed at the start but cheered off at the end so that tells you about his performance, so we're really pleased for him".

Rashford now wants England to head to Russian Federation with the belief that they can spring a surprise during the World Cup.

"Anything is possible. We have to go with the highest expectations".

"He played with a real swagger", said Southgate.

"The 23 are all ready to play, that is the most important thing".
