Worldwide friendly match report England v Nigeria 02 June 2018

Nigeria pulled one back through Arsenal attacker Alex Iwobi, but were unable to get any more goals, the game finishing a win for Gareth Southgate's men. My prayer is that we don't have injuries and also that Moses Simon makes the team to the World Cup.

"We were deservedly two goals up in the first half".

However, Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has said Ndidi will now start against Czech Republic on Wednesday in a final warm-up game leading up to the World Cup in Russian Federation.

The Three Lions got their World Cup preparations off to a strong start with a relatively comfortable victory in front of home fans.

Meanwhile, Lagos-born Iwobi and London-born Aina chose Nigeria for senior worldwide football but they played alongside Alli for England's youth teams and it's this familiarity they're looking to tap into to put the Tottenham Hotspur star off his game at Wembley. It was a decent exercise for us to adjust to that.

"It is good that we have another opportunity to try a couple of things, when we play the Czech Republic on Wednesday".

Trump 'WILL walk away' from North Korea talks 'without compromise'
Pompeo confirmed Chol will travel to Washington D.C. on hand deliver a note from Kim Jong Un to President Trump . Trump wrote in his letter last week that the talks would be "inappropriate" following the "hostility" from North Korea.

Former Chelsea midfielder Mikel played the whole 90 minutes and was impressed by what he saw from Southgate's men. If we can combine those together in the ideal way then we can go far.

"I think first and foremost he has conducted himself fantastically well this week, he has managed that situation very well".

"So credit to him he has had to come over that but it is to be expected for whatever reason. We were excellent in the first half and created a lot of chances", he said.

The coach added he would decide by Monday whether to give Jack Butland a start as England goalkeeper for the final pre-World Cup friendly against Costa Rica on June 7, but he spoke highly of Jordan Pickford's performance on Saturday.

Dele Alli was subjected to jeers from the large contingent of Nigeria supporters, who recalled his decision to snub their country in favour of representing England. But the visitors made their changes in the second-half and made a game of it.

"As I always say, a team's first game will determine how far it can go at a tournament".
