Marcus Rashford names performance against Costa Rica his best for England

There are also no obvious signs of the end-of-season fatigue that has so often weighed them down before major tournaments.

Marcus Rashford and Danny Welbeck - who is heading to Russian Federation as the squad's highest goalscorer - netted either side of half time during the Three Lions' 2-0 victory over Costa Rica at Elland Road on Thursday evening to round off a pleasing pre-tournament spell.

Both Rashford and Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek caught the eye to offer Southgate food for thought before the squad's departure for Russian Federation on Tuesday.

Only John Stones retains his starting place from the 2-1 friendly win over Nigeria at Wembley on Saturday as Gareth Southgate shuffles his pack for England's first match at Elland Road in 16 years. It has been a hard season, but I feel like I will be stronger for it.

"There is genuine competition for places".

England have impressed in warm-up wins over fellow World Cup teams Nigeria and Costa Rica.

Gareth Southgate will be under huge pressure in charge of England this summer, and the Three Lions boss may well feel underpaid compared to his fellow World Cup 2018 managers. Marcus has the qualities to have an impact on every single game. "You either select players, or you choose your system and pick the best people to fit into it", Southgate said.

Warriors beat Cavs to close in on second straight title
Iguodala, the 2015 finals MVP, scored eight points and made one steal in 22 minutes, but his impact went beyond those numbers. Green screamed and whined to the bench saying he didn't foul James, and even went as far as to call him a "f***ing p***y".

Southgate said leaving Ryan Bertrand out of the World Cup squad was one of his toughest decisions, having played a key role in qualification.

"If you look at Sterling, he gives the ball away a bit more in easy positions and I think Rashford plays better in an England shirt".

"I don't think I shall ever forget that (the Champions League final) really", he said. But three players in particular might have played unexpectedly their way into Southgate's starting eleven. That was world class. The average age of the 736 players - nearly 28 years - is the oldest in the tournament's history. It's still early for him. Having been given some extra time off following Real Madrid's Champions League final victory over Liverpool, Ronaldo made his 150th global appearance for Portugal.

"But we believe in him".

Do you have what it takes to challenge the best Fantasy Football Managers? It's interesting to note that Southgate has included five Spurs players in his squad - Trippier, Rose, Dier, Alli and Kane - who will help the side to settle when they kick off against Tunisia on June 18, and they will form the real basis of the team's spine. Probably try and watch my son play cricket, and be at home with the family.

"He is part of our team and part of our family for the next few months so we intend to protect and support our players", Southgate said in a recent interview.

"It's important to keep in perspective because tournaments demand huge energy levels from everyone".
