Everton, Newcastle interested in Marcus Rashford loan

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

Gareth Southgate made eight changes to the side that beat Nigeria 2-1 at Wembley on Sunday and it was Marcus Rashford that put the home side ahead after 12 minutes when his stunning long-range strike fizzed past Keylor Navas. A nice problem to have, says Max Liu, as he discusses the big questions in attack and defence. Principal among them was the scorer of the first goal, Marcus Rashford. "He played with a real swagger", Southgate told reporters.

It was just reward for a fine first-half performance but England lost some of their rhythm after the break, as Southgate made a number of changes, including handing goalkeeper Nick Pope his first taste of global football.

There have been suggestions that Rashford could seek a move this summer in order to get extra minutes and avoid stalling his development as a player.

The Three Lions manager admitted that he was impressed with the performance of young Rashford, who was a nightmare for Costa Rica defenders throughout the match and scored the first goal.

England start their World Cup Group G campaign in Russian Federation against Tunisia on June 18 and they will head into that fixture in Volgograd in good spirits after two friendly wins.

That resolve was tested with Adam Lallana, who is clearly a player for whom Southgate has great admiration, but he left him out on the basis that he started only one league game for Liverpool last season.

"We've already been through a little bit of adversity together in certain areas, and I think that's brought them close".

Marcus Rashford Shines As England Cruise Past Costa Rica
The friendly was played just 11 days before the Three Lions' opening World Cup match in Russian Federation against Tunisia . England have been drawn in Group G with Tunisia, Panama and Belgium.

Southgate's youthful 23-man squad may only have 11 World Cup appearances between them heading to Russian Federation but the manager is keen for the players to show their vast array of talents, and not worry about making mistakes.

Despite scoring a second against Costa Rica after the break, England let their opponents back into the game on Thursday night and a better team would have undoubtedly punished them more.

He added: "I think he could be huge for England at the tournament".

Rose has had a hard season for Tottenham, as he discussed in an extraordinary interview this week, but on Thursday he played with panache.

Henderson captained England on Thursday against Costa Rica and was outstanding in the 2-0 win.

England: Butland (Pope 65), Jones, Stones (Cahill 65), Maguire, Alexander-Arnold (Trippier 65), Henderson (Alli 65), Delph, Rose, Loftus-Cheek (Lingard 79), Rashford, Vardy (Welbeck 60).

"I played left midfield in a Champions League final for Chelsea".
