England vs Costa Rica: Live score, goals and updates from Elland Road

Gareth Southgate’s England entertain Costa Rica in a friendly at Elland Road.

It’s England's final warm-up fixture before they fly to Russia for three Group G clashes against Belgium, Tunisia and Panama.

Southgate has repeatedly told his players that there are “places up for grabs" and revealed Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jack Butland would feature in his starting XI.

Saturday’s 2-1 victory over Nigeria stretched the Three Lions' unbeaten run to nine games. Meanwhile Costa Rica are full of confidence having beaten Northern Ireland 3-0 over the weekend.

EVENING

18:55: Hello everyone, welcome to our LIVE coverage of England vs Costa Rica from Elland Road.

With just seven days until the World Cup gets underway, Gareth Southgate will be hoping to secure a convincing win tonight.

I was going to say that I think we all remember what happened the last time England played Costa Rica.

But that’s not really fair on those of us who slipped into a coma during the goalless draw at the 2014 World Cup.

Anyway, let’s not dwell on that awful night in Belo Horizonte and keep our fingers crossed that tonight will be a cracker.

Let’s get going!
