Trent makes England debut in win against Costa Rica

Trent Alexander-Arnold made his senior England debut as Gareth Southgate's side beat Costa Rica 2-0 in their final outing before the World Cup.

The key question now for Southgate is whether he opts to play Rashford in attack alongside Harry Kane or whether Raheem Sterling will keep that role.

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

England maintained the identity that has characterised them in the Southgate era.

England manager Gareth Southgate: Welcomes support of Yorkshire fans.

"I want to manage various ways of playing". But also the guys who oversee all the travel have made a big point of how important it is to come here and we are really looking forward to it.

"As much as anything, it is about coming and connecting with the country".

England have conceded just twice in their last seven games and haven't let one in during the opening 45 minutes in that run.

"I told them I was expecting mistakes tonight and if we are not, then we are not being creative enough, but if we are, then we get moments like that goal tonight". You hope that the loyalty of the supporters is going to be rewarded.

Unders had landed in the previous six England games although that included tight affairs against Brazil, Germany and Italy when more caution was needed.

The Liverpool defender started the friendly at Elland Road on Thursday night and featured for 64 minutes, as did club colleague Jordan Henderson.

Danny Rose and the uncapped Trent Alexander-Arnold should also feature at Elland Road in the final warm-up match before the tournament in Russian Federation.

On Elland Road as the venue: "While Wembley was being built we had some fantastic opportunities to play elsewhere".

"I thought his link-up was good".

"It is an important game". We have only taken two (warm-up games) as we had some players in the FA Cup final and a couple in the Champions League final.

He's right, too. This is how you get the best out of Rashford, Jose.

Jonathan Overend, alongside former England winger Chris Waddle and BBC chief football reporter Ian Dennis discuss the form of the England squad with the World Cup now less than a week away.

A fully-fit England squad trained at St George's Park ahead of their final friendly before the tournament.

He said: "I might sleep on it!"
