Match Preview

The Three Lions have mounted an impressive preparatory campaign for the World Cup in recent time and will aim to head over to Russia on a high. Gareth Southgate's men extended their unbeaten run of games to nine after securing a 2-1 win over Nigeria at Wembley in their last outing.

Ahead of the upcoming friendly, they are expected to reshuffle their squad to test the prowess of the other players who could not have a run in last Saturday's encounter. The likes of Jack Butland, Harry Maguire, Danny Rose, Jamie Vardy as well as Liverpool pair, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jordan Henderson, are all expected to feature against the upcoming friendly.

Similarly, Costa Rica is expected to rotate the starting XI that defeated Northern Ireland 3-0. Stars of the side, Marco Urena, and Cristian Bolanos, who were absent in Sunday's win are expected to make a return to the side.

Having conceded just a goal in their last three games against Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Tunisia, Los Ticos are expected to stage a stiff competition against England on Thursday. The two countries met in the group stage of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil where they played out a goalless draw inside the Estadio Mineirao.
