England v Costa Rica

England v Costa Rica

He's set to makes his Three Lions debut tonight in their final warm-up game against Costa Rica at Elland Road.

Much has been made of the youthful squad who will represent the Three Lions in Russian Federation, which is the youngest England party to travel to a World Cup since Chile in 1962.

Pope came out of nowhere to secure his position as England's third goalkeeper for the tournament ahead of the vastly experienced Joe Hart, who was one of the shock omissions from Southgate's World Cup squad. BBC say 4%, but should it be higher?

While Ruben Loftus-Cheek offered a reminder of his strength on the ball and Henderson delivered good service for the strikers with well-weighted balls from midfield, it was Rashford who made the strongest impression - and not only for his brilliant goal.

Marcus Rashford and Danny Welbeck scored in either half for the Three Lions, who will now prepare for their opening match in Russian Federation - against Tunisia on June 18.

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.

Now, the group is hoping to give the national team a pre-Russia boost as England take on the might of Costa Rica on Thursday evening.

More building blocks of life found on Mars
Ever since the twin Viking landers touched down in 1976, scientists have hunted for signs of organic molecules on Mars. These organic molecules were found at the bottom of what once was a lake bed, in rocks 3 billion years old.

In fact, this happens to be the initial fruits of a continued effort on the part of Apple to introduce more of iOS apps to Mac. Developers won't get access to these features until 2019, and users won't start seeing the benefits until sometime after.

However, both sides could play virtually anyone - it's not a competition match and managers will simply be looking to finalise their thoughts on their squad.

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.

Ronaldo set up the second in the 37th minute when he sped down the left and provided a pinpoint cross which Fernandes met with a powerful downward header for his first worldwide goal.

Harry Maguire and Jamie Vardy are given the chance to impress as England build towards their World Cup Group G opener against Tunisia in Volgograd a week on Monday.

And Rashford admitted afterwards that this was his best game in an England shirt.

"I do not want to be overly critical of Jose Mourinho but I imagine the environment is far better under Gareth Southgate than at Manchester United", Keown wrote in his Daily Mail column.
