Rashford stunner sees England past Costa Rica

Rashford scored with a lovely 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.

Elland Road has been the home of Leeds United since the club's foundation in 1919, with a capacity of 37,890.

There remains a possibility that Henderson could play in the more advanced role, but that would be a change of gear given his shielding responsibilities at Liverpool, while Dier is capable - but not eager - to play in a back three.

GARETH SOUTHGATE believes that England's first senior global in Yorkshire in over 16 years will serve as a timely boost for numerous county's success-starved supporters. "We asked the players to give us competition for places and they've done that". This left Tottenham star and England captain for the World Cup Harry Kane out.

For the first time since May 2016 and just third since the opening of the New Wembley, England were playing a home game away from the dubbed "Home of Football".

Marcus Rashford opened the scoring on 13 minutes and substitute Danny Welbeck sealed the win with a close-range header late on. In one swift motion, he turned after receiving the ball and struck a stunning effort past Keylor Navas.

Reports have suggested Marcus Rashford could leave Old Trafford this summer with Mourinho preferring Alexis Sanchez in the Manchester United XI.

A seventh minute free-kick in a unsafe area promised much, but when Delph hung a cross towards the far post Harry Maguire was judged to have fouled Costa Rica goalkeeper Keylor Navas. Johan Venegas dribbled past the defender and shot, forcing Jack Butland to work for the first time in the game.

Harry Kane averages better than a goal per game under Southgate so the 4/6 (anytime) or 12/5 (first) are both options but only if he forms a two-pronged attack with Vardy and is on from the beginning. "We're all proud to be Town fans and be part of the match day experience and were proud to be given the opportunity to play for England too!"

After the break, Costa Rica started to find more space going forward.

Gareth Southgate made 10 changes from the team that beat the Super Eagles of Nigeria 2-1 last Saturday.

The second half was a more subdued affair in terms of chances, the ten substitutions perhaps affecting the game's flow.
