The Liverpool defender started the friendly at Elland Road on Thursday night and featured for 64 minutes, as did club colleague Jordan Henderson.

The Three Lions have been warming up for the World Cup in Russian Federation with some friendly fixtures and the youngster didn't take long to score for his nation.

Much has been made of the youthful squad who will represent the Three Lions in Russian Federation, which is the youngest England party to travel to a World Cup since Chile in 1962.

"What pleased me most is that Marcus Rashford enjoyed his football", he told ITV.

Phil Jones clipped the crossbar with a header but it was Rashford who looked brightest in a positive early spell for England, and it was fitting for him to break the deadlock.

Rashford (centre) was too good.

In other friendlies, Iceland beat Ghana 2-0 (Kari Arnason 6 and Alfreo Finnbogason 40) while South Korea and Bolivia played to a goalless draw.

'You work on them [goals] in training every day and when one comes up in a game it's a reward, ' said Rashford.

"Anything is possible. We have to go with the highest expectations".

A short pass from Ruben Loftus-Cheek set up Marcus Rashford, whose cracking effort from distance stormed past Navas and into the back of the net for the opening strike on 13 minutes.

Harry Kane doubled the lead in the 39th minute taking a ball from Raheem Sterling and slotting it home for England's second goal of the match.

Navas can regain some form this summer at the World Cup with Costa Rica facing Brazil, Switzerland and Serbia in the group stages.

"I still need to get in the box a bit more to try and finish off some chances from crossing areas, so something to learn from each game".

England's rhythm was then stunted by five quickfire substitutions, including a debut for Burnley's Nick Pope in goal.
