Five minutes later he had underlined his brimming confidence levels with a howitzer of a shot that whistled past Keylor Navas and set England on their way to a 2-0 victory in their final friendly before departing for the World Cup in Russian Federation next week.
It looked like another plodding friendly between England and Costa Rica as the Three Lions get their final outing before heading off to Russian Federation.
Welcome to the Three Lions club, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Nick Pope.
Costa Rica: 1 Keylor Navas, 3 Giancarlo Gonzalez, 5 Celso Borges (capt), 8 Bryan Oviedo, 11 Johan Venegas, 12 Joel Campbell, 15 Francisco Calvo, 16 Christian Gamboa, 19 Kendall Waston, 20 David Guzman, 21 Marco Urena. "That is good competition and that is what we need", the Manchester United defender said, per the Independent. There were hints of this in the two friendly games played over the past week, particularly in the first half against Nigeria.
"It gives the manager a good selection headache and Marcus's goal was incredible".
Southgate told a press conference:"It's more hard and we have some serious decisions to take but in a good way".

Southgate had high praise for Rashford, who staked his claim to start England's World Cup campaign with a thunderbolt that dipped perfectly over Costa Rica goalkeeper Keylor Navas for his third worldwide goal.

But if it means seeing more goals like that of Rashford's tonight, then I'm all for it.
Henderson and Dier have played together in the engine room on many occasions but Southgate suggested this week he is keen to play with a solitary pivot alongside two more attacking central players.
Welbeck added: "Marcus has the qualities to have an impact on every single game". That was world class.
Of England's chances in Russian Federation, he added: "Gareth has a great group of players there". It's still early for him.
And while all is invariably sweetness and light before a ball is kicked in anger - or a game lost amid disappointment - before the start of any England campaign, the open-house policy was also a sign of a manager and squad at ease with themselves.
"But we believe in him".
It is safe to say that England's training base in Repino will not be a repeat of Baden Baden in 2006, when barely a tree was without its paparazzo and the shops and restaurants resounded to wives and girlfriends of players trying to promote their own image. Probably try and watch my son play cricket, and be at home with the family.
