England v Costa Rica International Friendly, 7th June 8.00 p.m.
The Three Lions looked comfortable enough in their friendly win over Nigeria at Wembley on the weekend. England produced a fantastic first-half performance and while they fell a little flat in the second half of the game when the Africans came back at them, there was a good workout for England ahead of the 2018 World Cup. Costa Rica are also warming up for the summer tournament where they will have a tough challenge ahead of them.

England v Costa Rica Betting Tips
England produced a fantastic first-half performance against Nigeria on the weekend, looking full of menace and attacking intent. England’s main goal scoring hope Harry Kane was on the scoresheet which is great for his confidence ahead of the tournament and will no doubt raise goalscorer interest for this game against Costa Rica. This is England’s last game ahead of the 2018 World Cup, so more likely than not boss Gareth Southgate will be probably more interested in looking at a few squad options. That is now six wins in their last nine games for England, remaining unbeaten in that sequence of matches. By and large, England have looked pretty solid defensively and have only shipped the two goals in their last seven fixtures now. That alone puts plenty of value on England to win two nil at bet 365 for 11/10 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 5:13 p.m. on June 4th, 2018). Even though Costa Rica are heading to the World Cup as well, they aren’t a team look any kind of threat, and England are likely to have it easier than they did against Nigeria.
In the bet365 correct score market an England two-nil option is at 5/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 5:13 p.m. on June 4th, 2018). Costa Rica collected a three-nil win over Northern Ireland on the weekend which was a good positive result for them, but they have lost four of their last six fixtures and that includes are heavy five-nil drubbing that they suffered against Spain back in the November international break. Costa Rica have scored in just two of their last six games so they shouldn’t pose too much of a threat to England at Wembley for what will be the first meeting between the two nations. Costa Rica are heading to Russia where they will have a tough challenge in trying to get out of Group E which also contains Brazil, Switzerland and Serbia. It is unlikely that they will have enough to challenge in this friendly on Thursday and under 2.5 goals is a solid option at even money* (Betting Odds taken at 5:13 p.m. on June 4th, 2018).
Who will win – England v Costa Rica Predictions
Even though England may not go full tilt at this one because nobody will want to get injured so close to the World Cup now, they should be more than comfortable still against their central American opposition. England are pretty solid at the back and back the Three Lions to win to nil.
