But Elland Road was lit up on 13 minutes when Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford got the ball just outside the box and unleashed a wicked strike that moved in the air as it sailed past Real Madrid keeper Keylor Navas and nestled in the back of the net.

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford scored an impressive goal as England secured a 2-0 win over Costa Rica in an global friendly at Elland Road.

England were on top without exerting too much pressure and got the second they deserved in the 76th minute.

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 global goal.

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 players have a good mentality and we have great competition for places in all positions".

England beat Costa Rica 2-0 at Elland Road in the Three Lions' final warm-up game for the World Cup.

We hear from the England manager as well as Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold who reflects on his debut.

"The team, the patterns of play, the professionalism, the approach to both matches have carried things out really well". It means a lot to be involved but going to the World Cup and playing a major part in my main aim.

Jordan Pickford is set to start the World Cup after he was given the number one shirt but Butland will have a final opportunity to stake his claim in the global at Elland Road. "We need that competition but I'm delighted with our preparation and I feel positive about our platform leading into the tournament", he said.

Many said his display against Costa Rica has cemented his place in England's starting line-up for their World Cup opener against Tunisia on June 18 - the next time they take to the field.

"Anything is possible. We have to go with the highest expectations".

Jamie Vardy was denied by a flying Navas from point-blank range as England pressed their advantage, although Jack Butland made a good save to deny Johan Venegas after a rare Costa Rica break.
