England 2 Costa Rica 0

Bryan Ruiz has over 100 caps for Costa Rica

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

"There were some good things and a lot to improve, but the first 20 minutes were very good", said coach Santos, who refused to give anything away about his starting line-up.

Roseanne: 'I Begged Them Not To Cancel The Show'
Jarrett spoke about the tweets directed at her by Roseanne Barr during an appearance on an MSNBC town hall on Tuesday. Yet people have tried to defend Barr by putting ABC's cancellation in liberal-conservative terms.


And given England's World Cup routes, whether winning or coming second in group G sees them likely to face either Brazil or Germany in the quarter-finals (should they get that far and both teams win their groups as expected) this will be something Southgate needs to work on in the final days before they travel to Russian Federation.

Rashford unleashed a dipping drive from the right in the 13th minute, that flew past Keylor Navas. Should Alexander-Arnold impress against Costa Rica, Kieran Trippier could lose his place.

After the break, Jordan Henderson forced a fine save out of Navas with a blast from the edge of the box and defender Harry Maguire had a header cleared off the line by Bryan Oviedo.

England were in the ascendancy and Rashford was exciting the Yorkshire crowd with a number of flashy touches and silky skills.

Loftus-Cheek dragged wide from distance before goalkeeper Nick Pope came on for his debut among a swathe of England alterations. Alex Iwobi cut the lead in half but it wasn't enough as England emerged victorious at the final whistle.
