England vs Costa Rica: Rashford, Welbeck seal win for Three Lions

Marcus Rashford scored a stunning effort, as England beat Costa Rica 2-0 in a pre-World Cup friendly at Elland Road on Thursday.

Gareth Southgate made 10 changes from the team that beat the Super Eagles of Nigeria 2-1 last Saturday.

Rashford unleashed a dipping drive from the right in the 13th minute, that flew past Keylor Navas.

After the break, Jordan Henderson forced a fine save from Navas, before the win was sealed in the 76th minute.

Substitute Danny Welbeck stooped to head in a Dele Alli cross.

England start their World Cup Group G campaign in Russia against Tunisia on June 18.
