Worldwide friendly match report England v Nigeria 02 June 2018

England beat Nigeria 2-1 in an global friendly played at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.

"A lot of countries do believe that England are a big threat in the World Cup", the Tottenham forward said.

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.

The 21-year-old was involved in full training on Monday in their Austria camp and is expected to start against the Czechs in Vienna.

Nigeria on Sunday named a final 23-man squad for the World Cup with Chelsea defender Ola Aina and Mikel Agu from FC Porto placed on standby.

However, the second half was a different story entirely, as England struggled to impose themselves on the game again after Iwobi's goal.

Harry Kane doubled England's lead four minutes before the break with a powerful low shot just outside the box that sailed under Uzoho, 2-0.

The visitors came flying out of the bocks after half time and halved the deficit within two minutes of the restart when Ighalo's effort came back off the post and bounced to the feet of Arsenal's Iwobi, who swept the rebound home.

"I think the pace in the team, you can feel it, and that is why we had some problems in the first half".

"He can be very pleased with his performance".

"I think we played really well with the ball especially, created a lot of good chances, far more good situations than we've had in recent games".
