PAWorld Cup 2018 England have never won a game any Elland Road

World Cup 2018 England friendly

Substitute Welbeck made certain of the win 14 minutes from time, though, diving to head home Dele Alli's cross, as England earned a vociferous send-off from the Leeds crowd before their opening match in Russian Federation against Tunisia on June 18.

The next time the Three Lions will be in action is for their Russian Federation 2018 opener against Tunisia on Monday 18 June.

"Obviously I want to keep on getting more game time for England and scoring more goals".

"He's still learning the game, really, which I know sounds freaky because he is now an England global, but he has so few league appearances that he is incredibly raw".

Of England's chances in Russian Federation, he added: "Gareth has a great group of players there". England flags were laid out on every seat and red and white glowed in the sun.

Henderson is heading to the World Cup on the back of a hugely successful season with Liverpool, although the final game of the campaign did not go to plan as Jurgen Klopp's side lost the Champions League final.

Costa Rica were the opponents in Leeds and were beaten 2-0.

Jesse Lingard and Dele Alli are both more natural fits for that kind of task but Henderson has played the number eight position in the past and would have no concerns about doing so again in Russian Federation. 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.

It was just reward for a fine first-half performance but England lost some of their rhythm after the break, as Southgate made a number of changes, including handing goalkeeper Nick Pope his first taste of worldwide football.

Gareth Southgate is facing far "more difficult" decisions for England's World Cup opener thanks to preparations that could scarcely have gone better.

Chief executive Martin Glenn said that a last-eight place would represent "a real sign of progress" after failing to get out of the group four years ago in Brazil.

The Leicester City striker had just seven touches in the first half, fewer than any other player on the pitch and was the first to be taken off for Danny Welbeck after 61 minutes. Managers have limited time with their players, meaning set pieces and defensive organisation carries more weight.

"We've already been through a little bit of adversity together in certain areas, and I think that's brought them close".

We were reminded of that once again on Thursday night as England played their final World Cup warm-up game on home soil.

Southgate's side honed their skills at a sold-out Elland Road on Thursday evening as they followed the win against Nigeria by beating Costa Rica in a manner more stirring than the 2-0 scoreline suggests. "This is a tightly knit group, so I think our togetherness will pull us through".

Has Rashford's goal sealed his played in starting XI?
