I've got 11 or 12 who are going to be hard to leave out, that's what I said to the players.

Roy Hodgson's already-eliminated side brought the curtain down on their terrible finals foray with a lifeless goalless draw in Belo Horizonte.

Manager Gareth Southgate made 10 changes to the team that beat Nigeria 2-1 on Saturday, with John Stones the one player to keep his place, while Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold made his debut at right wing-back. The statistics point towards Costa Rica wholeheartedly, with 64% possession to Northern Ireland's 36, outshooting Northern Ireland 21-3 with 5 shots on target and 8 corner kicks to Northern Ireland's 0.

The highlight was a stunning 25-yard strike in the 13th minute, which left Costa Rica and Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas clutching at thin air. They joined up late after their Champions League final defeat...

20 years old, born and raised in Central America and yet he still shares a name with that bloke you know who lives a few streets over and sells dodgy Amazon Fire sticks on the sly.

Navas spread himself well to deny Jamie Vardy from close range as England threatened a quickfire second, with Jack Butland, widely-expected to be back-up to Jordan Pickford, springing into action to deny Johan Venegas.

Washington Capitals Hoist First Stanley Cup After Dramatic Win Over Vegas
As the Caps locked in a 3-1 lead in the Stanley Cup Final Monday, an Oshie-themed SmarTrip card may soon be in the horizon. The Golden Knights tied it at 9:40 when Schmidt's shot deflected in off Capitals defenseman Matt Niskanen's right skate.

England have a tendency to under-estimate so-called lesser nations, but their performance in winning against Costa Rica, who were hand-picked as opponents in order to prepare Southgate's team for Panama, showed that they have the game plan to win games they should win.

Should Alexander-Arnold and Henderson be first Choice for Southgate's England.

Burnley keeper Pope, once a milkman, replaced Jack Butland just after the hour mark for his first England appearance at any level - but didn't have a lot to do.

Kieran Tripper was amongst them and sent a free-kick just wide, with Danny Rose - the subject of so much pre-match attention after speaking candidly about his depression - directed into the side netting.

"I do not want to be overly critical of Jose Mourinho but I imagine the environment is far better under Gareth Southgate than at Manchester United", Keown wrote in his Daily Mail column.

Dele Alli and Danny Welbeck combined perfectly for the second goal of the night, the Tottenham Hotspur man setting up his Arsenal counterpart with a delightful cross to head home emphatically. Alex Iwobi cut the lead in half but it wasn't enough as England emerged victorious at the final whistle.
