Costa Rica have been one of the major surprise packages in this tournament, toppling both Uruguay and Italy to sit pretty in Group D. A draw in Belo Horizonte will be enough for Costa Rica to top the group, but they know they will face an England side desperate to make amends for their disastrous World Cup campaign.

"The situation is quite complicated for the match," coach Jorge Luis Pinto said. "The mother of football cannot leave without points. They must take some pride, they can't just leave Brazil with their arms crossed. They're a young team with great potential for the future. They play well. It will be an aggressive game."

England were aware they were in the group of death heading into the World Cup, but Roy Hodgson's men would not have envisaged being knocked out of the tournament after just two games – both of them 2-1 losses, to Italy and Uruguay.

The backlash back home has been severe, and England will be desperate to ensure they leave Brazil with something to show, like Spain did against Australia on a Monday with a 3-0 victory.

"We're very conscious of the fact that our fans are as disappointed and devastated as we are, but they are still here supporting us," Hodgson said. "We came into the hotel and received a lot of sympathy, kind words from them and we really want to make certain tomorrow night that they see something tomorrow that they can take some encouragement from.

"And most importantly of all, it's a top-class international on the biggest stage of all, the World Cup, so anything else than taking the game very seriously and trying to win the game in its own right would be out of the question."

While it is Costa Rica, after playing some exciting, brilliantly tactically aware football in their first two matches, that go into the game with six points from two matches, Pinto insisted pointless England will start the game as favourites.

"The English haven't been lucky in finding the goal," he added on Monday. "They kept getting to the box but didn't make the chances. They have the history and jersey. They're favourites tomorrow."

Hodgson revealed he would be making several changes to his side against Costa Rica, giving youth and the players who haven't played too much an opportunity, with Frank Lampard set to captain the side in the absence of the rested Steven Gerrard.

"I'm looking for them to show their talent," he said. "Both of them are very good passers of the ball, very good at running with the ball.

"Both, for young players, have good vision for the game. That will improve the more games they play, but they're well advanced for their age. This is a chance for them to show they are good players."

Expected lineups: Costa Rica: Navas; Gamboa, Duarte, Gonzalez, Umana, Diaz; Borges, Tejeda; Ruiz, Campbell, Brenes.

England: Foster; Jones, Cahill, Smalling, Shaw; Lampard, Wilshere, Milner, Barkley, Lallana; Sturridge.

Prediction: 2-2
