Jordan Henderson is adamant that England will exit the World Cup on a high with a win against Group D leaders Costa Rica.

The Three Lions’ fate is already sealed after two losses in their opening two games to Italy and Uruguay, which will see the nation fall down at the competition’s first hurdle for the first time since 1958.

Even though expectations surrounding Roy Hodgson’s men were at an all time low heading to Brazil, few had predicted the woeful zero points the side currently has, which may get even worse against shock leaders Costa Rica – who have a 100% record so far.

Henderson – who has started both games for England alongside Liverpool team-mate Steven Gerrard in midfield – says that the team will be going all out to salvage some pride against the Central Americans tonight:

“We’ll be approaching the game the same as we have the other two, and that’s to go out and win the game,” he is quoted by the Liverpool Echo.

“We’ll not prepare any differently because we are out of the competition, we’ll go out and finish on a high and get a win. We don’t want to go home losing all three games.

“We want to show people how much we do really care and for everyone back home, give them some enjoyment in the final game. Give them something to shout about and put on a good performance.”
