ENGLAND boss Gareth Southgate has confirmed Stoke City's Jack Butland will start the Three Lions' final World Cup warm-up game against Costa Rica tomorrow night ahead of Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope.

"Things were said and things happened behind the scenes at my club and I don't want to go into any detail because I'll end up being fined again".

Southgate said that the players and staff had discussed the issue but suggested that, if there were incidents, leaving the field was not likely to be an option.

"We've done stuff at Canalside pre-match as well as when the players come off the bus, particularly the executioner's drumroll when the opposition team arrive and get off their coach!" But also the guys who oversee all the travel have made a big point of how important it is to come here and we are really looking forward to it. "It's no good me sitting here talking saying we need to do this and that, it's about going and performing, and I believe we can do that", he said.

"There'll be a lot on his shoulders, but he's more than capable of handling that", Cahill said of Kane.

He is expected to start against Costa Rica tonight in what is England's final warm-up game before heading to Russian Federation.

In the first half when we had chances, we can't lose our confidence because a team changed their formation'. Just before half-time, captain Harry Kane made it 2-0 to round off a comfortable half for the home side.


Several eyebrows were raised on Monday afternoon when Federation Internationale de Football Association revealed the official squad lists for the upcoming World Cup and Kane was listed as the joint-second heaviest player who will be in Russia for the tournament.

But the player says there is no guarantee that he will start. "We have personal support, team support and official protocol in place", Southgate told a news conference.

He had to wait four months before being told he needed an operation that ruled him out of the start of last season.

"For the benefit of the other players I asked him to share his experiences in Serbia".

England's Raheem Sterling speaks during the media day at St George's Park, Burton.

"It has not been an unusual path and I think probably the key is starting to play first-team football early and getting used to the consequences of losing and playing in front of a crowd".
