Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland will start for England in Thursday's international friendly with Costa Rica, according to a report.

Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland will reportedly start for England in Thursday's international friendly with Costa Rica.

England will complete their preparations for the 2018 World Cup with a clash against Costa Rica at Elland Road.

Everton's Jordan Pickford will seemingly be England's first-choice goalkeeper for this summer's tournament in Russia, having been handed the number one shirt ahead of the competition.

However, according to Sky Sports News, Butland will be given the chance to impress against Costa Rica as Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate has decided to start the 25-year-old.

England will open their World Cup Group G campaign against Tunisia on June 18, before also taking on Panama and Belgium as they bid to make the knockout rounds of the tournament.
