Marcus Rashford believes England can go all the way at the World Cup in Russia and hopes to play a major partMore

In fact, England have not won a match in a World Cup since 2006 and, quite rightly, expectations are not particularly high going into the tournament.

"His movement and his first touch was great and I just think he has the ability to go past players and score goals".

That has created a new atmosphere around the England squad, according to Welbeck, and they are relishing the chance to impress on the global stage.

England are not only one of the youngest in the tournament - only France and Nigeria have younger squads - they have the fewest caps of any squad. However, Danny Rose was presented with an opportunity to prove himself against Costa Rica. With the sale of the national stadium being debated at present - and one of the suggested benefits being more freedom to take the Three Lions away from the capital more frequently - it is a big night in PR terms.

"England have a kind draw up until the last eight and if they get that far it will be 'Hallelujah!'".

Rashford, who impressed throughout with his speed and control, fired England ahead in the 13th minute, unleashing a dipping drive from the right which flew past Costa Rica keeper Keylor Navas.

But while that competition may have come too soon for the young players, it was a massively important learning curve for the group, who have now been together long enough to suggest that Russian Federation may just well be where England finally shines following an impressive qualifying campaign.

Costa Rica advanced through to the World Cup in second place in CONCACAF, finishing second behind Mexico and three points in front of England's group G opponents Panama.

He also believes they will reach the quarter-finals in Russian Federation and have a chance to do even better.

This new-look England should be a source of excitement.

Kane will be expected to chalk up the Three Lions' goals. "I think a lot of the players are really looking to going and seeing what effect they can have". With no goalkeeper. I didn't want them to affect my confidence. "At the Euros in two years or the next World Cup there'll be more demands".

In the last 40 years, England may have been lacking on the pitch but off it they certainly aren't - they have the best fans in the world.

With just a matter of days remaining until the 2018 World Cup starts in Russian Federation there is a sense of excitement building among football supporters across the globe.

Carrying the weight of the nation on their shoulders once again on football's grandest of stages, the world will be watching and a united England will be behind them all the way.
