As for the actual friendly, the final game before England's World Cup campaign, Gareth Southgate's charges beat Costa Rica 2-0 thanks to goals from Marcus Rashford and Danny Welbeck.

England manager Gareth Southgate admitted Marcus Rashford had given him a hard decision to make ahead of the World Cup with a stunning strike in a 2-0 friendly victory over Costa Rica on Thursday (June 7).

Rashford scored with a handsome 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.

Gareth Southgate could not be happier with England's World Cup preparations given the kinship and qualities his group are displaying.

Hopefully it will be the 4-4-2 in a bar beat of Terrier Brass that will inspire England to success against Costa Rica and then the rest of the world in Russian Federation in the next month.

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

"Going to the World Cup and playing a major part in my main aim", he added.

"We could go through 11 of those on the basis of what we saw tonight - and that's critical because we won't progress on 11 players chosen in the first game".
