Marcus Rashford admitted he tried to "play free" and enjoy his football in England's 2-0 friendly win over Costa Rica.

The friendly was played just 11 days before the Three Lions' opening World Cup match in Russian Federation against Tunisia. The Three Lions were 2-0 victors over Costa Rica and Leeds United's Elland Road.

But R & R (Rashford and Ruben) could work well as a plan B for some tricky situations the Three Lions are bound to find themselves in in Russian Federation.

Gareth Southgate was clearly delighted with the effort on the touchline and it certainly gives the England Manager food for thought ahead of the match against Tunisia a week on Monday. 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. This left Tottenham star and England captain for the World Cup Harry Kane out.

Marcus Rashford opened the scoring on 13 minutes and substitute Danny Welbeck sealed the win with a close-range header late on.

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.

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

Gareth Southgate will hand 19-year-old Trent Alexander-Arnold his England debut and Jack Butland will also start in goal.




The substitutions disrupted the flow of the game at first, but the replacements quickly found the pace of the game.

"But that game has gone and it's a truly European league now".

England rounded off the night comfortably, though.

Southgate said: "For sure Jack Butland plays in goal". "When you are playing in tournaments, you are on the road, so it is good to play away from Wembley in that respect". He was always trying to find space between the lines and dribble past defenders.

It was Costa Rica's only threat in a dominant first-half display by England.

The right wing-back, the youngest member of England's World Cup squad, looked comfortable in his new surroundings, confident and assured in possession (and when on free-kicks) and alert when defending.

England play their other World Cup group games against Panama on 24 June and Belgium on 28 June.
