Danny Welbeck: Marcus Rashford "free to play" for England

Danny Welbeck: Marcus Rashford

Alexander-Arnold was handed his senior team debut after an impressive campaign at Liverpool which culminated in a Champions League final appearance two weeks ago.

Marcus Rashford and Danny Welbeck netted the two goals in the win over Costa Rica as the Three Lions heads to the tournament in Russian Federation high on confidence after back-to-back victories.

Henderson has been one of Southgate's key performers in the last 12 months, and while he might have missed out on the captain's armband, with his manager turning to Harry Kane instead, the former Sunderland midfielder is desperate to be involved from the outset in Russian Federation.

The South Americans finally got into the game on 26 minutes when Johan Venegas aimed for a top-corner finish but an outstretched save from Butland kept the ball out. I'm improving, getting better all the time.

"I feel in good physical form leading up to the tournament".

With talisman Cristiano Ronaldo back in the side, Portugal strolled to a 3-0 win over Algeria in a World Cup warm-up match in Lisbon on Thursday.

Mystery surrounds the one-millimetre long creatures that made the prints, since no trace of their bodies has been found. The tracks are from the Ediacaran Period , making them the first prints left by animals from that period.

"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.

That has created a new atmosphere around the England squad, according to Welbeck, and they are relishing the chance to impress on the global stage. I think he could sell it to the nation that this is just one for experience. "It will always be there because it hurts so much". He said to the England and Tottenham player: "I think it's really, really good what you did...well done".

Yet in keeping with his career so far, there was still a feeling that more is to come if his finishing can match the quality of his skill and movement.

"We could go through 11 of those on the basis of what we saw tonight - and that's critical because we won't progress on 11 players chosen in the first game".

England's victory in Leeds followed Saturday's 2-1 win over Nigeria but perhaps more importantly, Southgate's squad appear to have avoided picking up any injuries as they prepare to fly to Russian Federation.

"My most outstanding moments watching England were Michael Owen's goal (against Argentina) in '98 and Beckham's free-kick against Greece at Old Trafford". Ghana, who failed to qualify for the World Cup, hit back through Kasim Nuhu before Thomas Partey fired home three minutes from time. "You work on them (goals) in training every day and when one comes up in a game it's a reward", Rashford told ITV.
