England coach Roy Hodgson is expected to play the kids in their World Cup dead rubber against Costa Rica.

The Mail on Sunday reports Southampton fullback Luke Shaw may get an early chance to fill the left-back berth in place of Leighton Baines and Everton's Ross Barkley may get a first start if England switch to a 4-3-3 - Raheem Sterling dropping out - to give them more solidity in midfield.

Arsenal attacker Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is likely to emerge from the bench if his recovery from injury continues.
