"It's one of the things that the three boys that have been on standby have talked about when I spent time with them today, and that's not to be underestimated because I think that gives us a real strength going into Russian Federation".

Marcus Rashford and Danny Welbeck netted the two goals in the win over Costa Rica as the Three Lions heads to the tournament in Russian Federation high on confidence after back-to-back victories.

There have been no histrionics, no players smashing up hotel rooms on being told they have been left out, no media outrage about a player picked or omitted. They are going to make errors, but they might also show the glimpses like Marcus's goal.

And following his side's second successive success, in which he made 10 changes to the lineup that overcame Nigeria at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, the 47-year-old told Sky Sports he has a number of hard calls to make ahead of the Group G opener on Monday week. It's still early for him.
