England show World Cup promise in home victory over Nigeria

England show World Cup promise in home victory over Nigeria

Dawson, the former Tottenham defender, was part of the England squad at the 2010 World Cup, though none of his four caps were won under Fabio Capello in South Africa.

With the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation drawing ever closer, England manager Gareth Southgate has come up with an innovative way to keep things fresh in the England camp.

The game against Costa Rica at Elland Road will be the last match before the squad fly out to Russian Federation, providing Southgate with an opportunity to make any final tactical tweaks and take a look at some other players who did not feature in the 2-1 win over Nigeria.

Though the Everton man is set to be rested for the final World Cup warm-up game against Costa Rica at Elland Road on Thursday, he is expected to continue in goal when England begin their campaign in Russian Federation.

Southgate provided an insight into his likely XI for the Group G opener with Tunisia on 18 June, against Nigeria last weekend. That [opponents winding him up in Russia] is not going to be a problem. England versus Nigeria borrowed from that catalogue.

In all honesty, it's doubtful that England will go all the way, but let's at least give ourselves a little hope with a lighthearted look at some reasons why Harry Kane and company could be getting their hands on the trophy in Moscow on the 15th of July.
