Jack Butland will start in goal for England against Costa Rica

Jack Butland will start in goal for England against Costa Rica in the warm-up match ahead of the World Cup.

Jordan Pickford started in the 2-1 win over Nigeria on Saturday, pundits think Pickford has been handed the No 1 shirt by Gareth Southgate.

Jack Butland has not given up hope of becoming England’s first-choice goalkeeper and is determined to prove his worth against Costa Rica.

“Until there is an official announcement whereby I’m not playing then I will keep fighting and I’ll pushing and staking my claim to be the No 1, regardless of shirt number,” he said.

“We’ll see what happens. I’ll push myself as hard as I can and push the others as hard as I can as well.”
