England vs. Nigeria - Football Match Report

England vs. Nigeria - Football Match Report

Following an inconsistent season with Tottenham and some diffident displays for England, Alli needed to cement his place in Southgate's team and, ignoring the hail of boos, he was making a convincing case.

Luckily, Nigeria are playing England, which means we all get to ogle their delicious attire.

"I prefer that he is in the team".

Of Wolves' Ikeme, 31, who last played first-team football in March 2017 and may have proved the solution for a team often accused of lacking a convincing goalkeeper, Rohr added: "There is also the opportunity to have a think about our sick goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme".

Placed in the same group as Argentina, Iceland and Croatia, the Super Eagles will hope to head into the World Cup in good shape and high spirits so as to qualify from the tough group.

Gary Cahill headed England ahead in the early stages, before Harry Kane netted later in the first period. If we can combine those together in the flawless way then we can go far.

"I'm sure if you asked Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, the two best players in the world, they would say they can improve on something".

England will host costa Rica in Leeds on June 7 before flying to Russian Federation, where they open the World Cup against Group G rivals tunisia on June 18.

Former Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel tried his luck from range and forced Pickford into a save with just over 20 minutes remaining, but despite Nigeria's improvement in the second half they were largely limited to such speculative efforts.

England's preparation for this summer's FIFA World Cup finals in Russian Federation cranks up as Nigeria visit Wembley in a warm-up match ahead of the tournament.

The most positive thing from the game was our second half performance, especially the players who came into the midfield.

Nigeria were sloppy during the first half and their limp performance in the opening 45 minutes was embodied by Uzoho's blunder, the Deportivo La Coruna goalie allowing Kane's central strike to slip from his grasp.

"It was incredible to get on the pitch, that's all we work for is to be on the pitch week in, week out, and it was just really nice to get on the pitch and get the win".

But the game was little of a true test for England, who benefited from a string of first-half errors by Nigeria.
