England vs. Costa Rica - Football Match Report

Sergej Milinković-Savi England vs. Costa Rica - Football Match Report
Noah Ferguson | 08 June, 2018, 08:55

A stunning strike from Marcus Rashford and a Danny Welbeck header gave a confident-looking England a 2-0 win over Costa Rica in their World Cup warm-up friendly at Elland Road on Thursday.

Southgate made 10 changes from the side that beat Nigeria 2-1 on Saturday with 19-year-old Trent Alexander-Arnold of Liverpool handed his global debut at right-back.

Alexander-Arnold debuted, and Henderson, who will play the pivot with Dier, showed his strength from the beginning. BBC say 4%, but should it be higher?

Phil Jones clipped the crossbar with a header but it was Rashford who looked brightest in a positive early spell for England, and it was fitting for him to break the deadlock.

This famous old ground was rocking throughout, from the opening rendition of "Football's coming home" to jeering Costa Rica keeper Keylor Navas every time he was in possession, the 36,104 in attendance certainly knew how to create an atmosphere on a balmy Thursday evening.

England maintained the identity that has characterised them in the Southgate era. A random appointment? No. Southgate specifically asked for an Asian official to take charge as he wants his players to experience different styles of refereeing. We don't just represent, the South of England but also the North.

On Elland Road as the venue: "While Wembley was being built we had some fantastic opportunities to play elsewhere". I feel like we're in good physical form.

Alexander-Arnold played in the Champions League final for Liverpool, which they lost to Real Madrid 3-1.

"We seem to have got through the two games without serious injuries and we have given ourselves a really good platform".

A fully-fit England squad trained at St George's Park ahead of their final friendly before the tournament.

Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, Jordan Henderson, Jamie Vardy and Dele Alli were all involved in the session on Wednesday morning, as was Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton who is on the standby list for the World Cup squad.
