  • Wallace with the Sport Recife team ahead of a Copa Sudamericana clash

Collecting Ruben Loftus-Cheek's pass, Rashford turned into space and unleashed an unstoppable strike from 25 yards out that dipped over Keylor Navas and into the left-hand corner.

Dier played the anchoring role at Wembley and Henderson will take over for Thursday's farewell friendly against Costa Rica at Elland Road, but decision time is looming for the Group G opener against Tunisia.

Harry Kane doubled the lead in the 39th minute taking a ball from Raheem Sterling and slotting it home for England's second goal of the match.

Right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold will make his England debut at some stage in the game and Southgate said he would be prepared to throw any of his squad into a World Cup starting XI.

The win was wrapped up in the 76th minute when substitute Welbeck, for some a surprise choice in England's World Cup squad, stooped to head in a Dele Alli cross.

The Cavaliers are 8-1 at home in this year's playoffs, losing only in their first-round opener against Indiana. "I'm not suprised. James defended Curry after Trump blamed him for the disinvitation, tweeting: "U bum". " LeBron is too great of a player .

Marcus Rashford has not done enough to start for England at the World Cup, former Three Lions manager Sam Allardyce has told talkSPORT. England outpossessed Nigeria 59-41, with each team having 12 shots, four on target. I'm happy with the game today and the result because I feel like we're in good physical form leading up to the tournament which is the most important thing.

Pope will be England's third-choice shot-stopper at the tournament behind Jordan Pickford and Butland, but he would still relish making his senior global debut. Anything is possible and we have to go there with the highest expectations'.

Southgate made widespread alterations in a bid to test his options and for the most part was rewarded with an encouraging display, with Rashford superbly opening the scoring before Danny Welbeck came off the bench to secure a 2-0 win against underwhelming Costa Rica.

Jamie Vardy was denied by a flying Navas from point-blank range as England pressed their advantage, although Jack Butland made a good save to deny Johan Venegas after a rare Costa Rica break. I still need to get in the box a bit more to finish off chances.
