  • Rodney Wallace is looking forward to his first World Cup with Costa Rica

Right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold will make his England debut at some stage in the game and Southgate said he would be prepared to throw any of his squad into a World Cup starting XI.

England hosted Costa Rica at Elland Road on Thursday night, with Jordan Henderson captaining his side.

The Manchester United forward's effort set the Three Lions on their way to victory in their final warm-up match prior to the World Cup, with Danny Welbeck sealing the result with a second-half header.

England will travel to Russian Federation on Tuesday on a wave of renewed sense of national optimism after Gareth Southgate's side signed off their World Cup preparation with two impressive victories.

"What pleased me most is that he [Marcus Rashford] enjoyed his football tonight and he played with a real swagger".

But two of those to come off the bench combined for England's second goal 14 minutes from time as Dele Alli's cross was headed home by Welbeck.

In other friendlies, Iceland beat Ghana 2-0 (Kari Arnason 6 and Alfreo Finnbogason 40) while South Korea and Bolivia played to a goalless draw.

Hill, a 10-year veteran playing in the Finals for the first time , called it the most disappointing loss of his career. He made 19 of 32 shots, added eight rebounds and eight assists and played almost 48 minutes for a third straight game.

"We've already been through a little bit of adversity together in certain areas, and I think that's brought them close".

"We asked the players to give us competition for places, and they've done that".

Rashford figures to play an important role for England in Russian Federation.

"You work on shots like those in training pretty much every day, so when one comes off in the game it's the reward you get for the practise". I feel like we're in good physical form. "He is still filling out - we sometimes forget how old he is", Southgate said.

"I said to all the team before the game, I expect to see mistakes tonight and, if I don't, there might be a problem because we wouldn't be being as attack-minded as we want to be".

"It means a lot to be involved but going and hopefully playing a major part is my main aim", he added. Anything is possible and we have to go there with the highest expectations'.
