England 2-0 Costa Rica

England 2-0 Costa Rica

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.

Rashford now wants England to head to Russian Federation with the belief that they can spring a surprise during the World Cup. BBC say 4%, but should it be higher?

But while Rashford shone and gave his manager a selection dilemma ahead of England's opening game against Tunisia on June 18, strike partner Jamie Vardy struggled to make an impact.

A sold out Elland Road was treated to its first England global since 2002 - and boy did the locals enjoy it.

Manager Gareth Southgate was delighted with the "swagger" Rashford displayed and suggested he lost some confidence playing as United's main striker towards the end of the season.

Mindful of the loyal support for England across Yorkshire over the years, Harrogate-based Southgate told The Yorkshire Post: "I have been here for 15 years, so we are very settled and I know the support in the area for England, but also football generally". I am really excited for the upcoming weeks.

The Clarets No.1 has yet to make his global bow and, unless he comes off the bench at Elland Road, seems set to travel to Russian Federation uncapped as England's third choice.

This is what England need, sending the team up and down the country, playing their home games in front of all members of their fanbase - not just those who live in London and tourists visiting - to bring excitement back into the national game.

On Elland Road as the venue: "While Wembley was being built we had some fantastic opportunities to play elsewhere. We did not want to have too many matches, but it means that the two games that we have got are very important". Young, meanwhile, instinctively takes the ball onto his right and, against better opposition than Costa Rica, this could become a problem.

I've not got a player in the squad who I would think twice about putting into the opening game of the World Cup.

After putting in a timely match-winning shift, Rashford looks like a shoe-in to start against Tunisia, and with Harry Kane coming back in for Vardy, the team suddenly look capable of making a decent fist of it.

"I'm happy with the game and the result".
