England v Costa Rica Live on ITV

Costa Rica finished above England in their 2014 World Cup group

Costa Rica finished above England in their 2014 World Cup group

Butland, the Stoke City goalkeeper, will hope to produce an eye-catching display with Southgate leaning towards starting Everton's Jordan Pickford in the opening World Cup group G game against Tunisia on June 18.

Pope's rise has become a well-told story in recent weeks after he was called into the England squad for the first time in March, with the former milkman now heading to Russian Federation with the England squad. Nothing that the England manager didn't already know.

"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".

England manager Gareth Southgate: Welcomes support of Yorkshire fans. "As a team, we are hugely supportive of what he's done".

"We made 10 changes and maintained the momentum with what we are doing". We are not just a London-based team.

Not long till we find out who he fields as the World Cup is less than a week away!

"Sometimes when you speak to people they don't really understand the feeling."

"The potential of some of the clubs is phenomenal really, including this one (Leeds United)".

And for the first time since May 2016, an England home game had an atmosphere!

Jalan had been arrested for betting on IPL matches by the Mumbai crime branch in 2012 too, the official added. The police say he worked for a kingpin of cricket betting who goes by the name of "Junior Kolkata".

So it was that England defeated Costa Rica 2-0 last night at Elland Road in a game that rarely came to life.

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.

He added: "We love playing for Town".

"It is an important game". They joined up late after their Champions League final defeat...

Rashford endured a hard end to the season at United, scoring just four times in 2018 at club level, and suffering some stinging criticism from Jose Mourinho.

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.

The win was wrapped up in the 76th minute when substitute Welbeck, for some a surprise choice in England's World Cup squad, stooped to head in Dele Alli's cross.

Southgate called the goal "world class" but he was just as happy with the all-round play of the 20-year-old Manchester United forward.
