England’s Marcus Rashford unfazed by limited Manchester United playing time

Trent Alexander-Arnold confirmed for England start against Costa Rica

The 47-year-old urged his side to forget about the past and make history in Russian Federation.

A relatively new-look squad under then manager Roy Hodgson was recruited for Uefa Euro 2016 and, despite their shock loss to Iceland of all teams in the round of 16, and after some indifferent performances against Russia, Slovakia and Wales, it was the first real glimpse of the new generation of players for fans to rally around.

Vardy's pre-World Cup break wasn't a total escape. "It means a lot to be involved but going to the World Cup and playing a major part in my main aim", the 20-year-old said.

Gareth Southgate has admitted Jordan Henderson and Eric Dier could be fighting over one place in England's World Cup side.

So, it was felt that the Three Lions' time had come and gone following poor tournaments in Japan and South Korea, Germany, South Africa and, most recently, in Brazil. He scores a wide range of goals and is equally as likely to finish from close range as he is to unleash a long-range thunderbolt. But manager Gareth Southgate is a big admirer of Jack Butland and could be tempted to offer one last chance to the Stoke man. I still need to get in the box a bit more to finish off chances.

"Football's coming home" chanted fans throughout a largely encouraging display from Southgate's young squad, who have a brief break before meeting up and heading to Russian Federation on Tuesday. Only five members of the team who are heading to Russian Federation in the summer were involved in England's previous World Cup campaign whilst senior figures, most notably Wayne Rooney and Joe Hart, have been gradually fazed out. Ashley Young could also play at left-wing back, whilst Marcus Rashford could partner Harry Kane up top. Furthermore, they are still all developing and have not reached their peak. England begin their campaign against Tunisia in Volgograd a week on Monday. These fresh attitudes and sense of fearlessness will be key to ensuring that the team progress to the latter stages of the tournament. "It gives you that freedom to go out and play on the pitch." the Arsenal forward added.

The system suits the players that he has at his disposal. While there is a predictability to Young's game, there isn't so much to Rose's. By the time the full-time whistle blows England's Group G opener will be just 11 days away and he has yet to play a single minute for his country. When you hit it with the inside of your foot, it just curves naturally.
