Prince William meets England squad ahead of World Cup

Trent Alexander-Arnold confirmed for England start against Costa Rica

England striker Marcus Rashford in action against Costa Rica at Elland Road, Leeds on 7 June 2018. We are all hopeful that it will go well, but we are having conversations in case (racism) happens.

England, whose manager Gareth Southgate made 10 changes from the side which beat Nigeria 2-1 at Wembley on Saturday, dominated possession against a mostly unadventurous Costa Rica side but they created few clear chances.

"Every time I play for England I try to do my best and try to give everything".

"Everyone in the 23-man squad wants to play and have done well enough this season to cement a starting place".

This is something which Alexander-Arnold and Rose did to a good standard against Costa Rica, and can be relied upon if Southgate called upon their services in Russian Federation.

In order to win a major worldwide tournament you need to possess a prolific goal scorer and there is none better in the world right now than Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane.

Pace can cause problems to any defence, and this is a quality England have which can help them potentially go far in Russian Federation should they use it right.

Everton, Newcastle United and Leicester City are interested in signing Marcus Rashford from Manchester United in the summer transfer window, according to The Daily Mail. On the turn, he took the ball off Rueben Loftus-Cheek.

"She is great and my family will always come first but we have got a big tournament to prepare for".

But while that competition may have come too soon for the young players, it was a massively important learning curve for the group, who have now been together long enough to suggest that Russian Federation may just well be where England finally shines following an impressive qualifying campaign.

He also believes they will reach the quarter-finals in Russian Federation and have a chance to do even better.

Los Ticos are in the same group as pre-tournament favourites Brazil along with European nations Switzerland and Serbia - both of whom impressed in UEFA qualifying.

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

The Three Lions played a high-energy game and kept possession well, two things their opponents failed to do.

"Why would I limit what they feel is possible?" "Sometimes I think: 'They're never going to go for this.' They're at times painstakingly putting up with some of the things I throw their way so that, I think, would be more hard with older players".

"It's so rare because it's every four years, so you don't get many opportunities in your career, especially when you start late like me".

"It was nice when he said that about me, but football does not stand still and things move on".

"It means a lot to be involved but going to the World Cup and playing a major part is my main aim. They are football mad over there!"
