Speaking to the media ahead of the warm-up game against Nigeria at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, Lingard insisted he has faith in the squad ahead of his first major tournament with his country.

The West Africans got off to a dream start in the second half as Alex Iwobi riffled home a rebound to reduce the deficit and set up a nervy contest for the home team.

The team will leave for Austria venue of their last friendly match against the Czech Republic that will be played on June, 6. The two teams put all the experiences they have had in the works when the open campaign June 16 at the Kaliningrad Stadium in Russian Federation.
