"With the (England) teams I played in, the (Manchester) United group were exceptional, but outside of that it was only Tony Adams who started at Arsenal and was there all the way through".

Rashford (centre) was too good.

"He played with a real swagger", said Southgate.

England will travel to Russian Federation on Tuesday on a wave of renewed sense of national optimism after Gareth Southgate's side signed off their World Cup preparation with two impressive victories.

However, Southgate insisted the 20-year-old needs to express himself and feel the freedom to make mistakes.

"He had a hard end to the season having to play on his own as a No. 9 at times".

"Some of the individual situations like Danny and Raheem's have come up and have allowed us to talk about different things and support each other", the Three Lions boss said. That's what's best for the England national team and us as individuals.

"They are going to make errors, but by taking risks they show the glimpses of quality like Marcus's opening goal". "The goal was world-class.".


England will ring the changes for Thursday's friendly against Costa Rica in Leeds with manager Gareth Southgate handing Trent Alexander-Arnold his senior debut and keen to give his entire squad playing time before the World Cup.

Navas can regain some form this summer at the World Cup with Costa Rica facing Brazil, Switzerland and Serbia in the group stages.

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

However, there was a gulf in class even between Southgate's largely second string line-up and the Central Americans as England dominated.

"I still need to get in the box a bit more to try and finish off some chances from crossing areas, so something to learn from each game".

Loftus-Cheek dragged wide from distance before goalkeeper Nick Pope came on for his debut among a swathe of England alterations.

Danny Welbeck added a second for England after the break with a diving header from a Dele Alli cross.
