England vs Nigeria
Date: Saturday, 2nd June 2018
Kick-Off at 18:15 GMT +2
Venue: Wembley Stadium, London.
With the World Cup set to kick off in just two-week time, England and Nigeria are set to grab the momentum by getting the results in the upcoming warm-up friendlies. Whilst Saturday’s tie at Wembley will be the first of two checks for the Three Lions, Nigeria have already been in action on Monday playing only a disappointing 1-1 draw to continental rivals Congo DR.
Bouncing back after such a poor showing will be quite a challenging task for Gernot Rohr and his men. The German manager generally has a decent quality in his ranks with some of the Premier League stars set to defend the green colors of the Super Eagles in Russia.
Victor Moses was rested in the mentioned draw with Congo and he should make an appearance against England, while Kelechi Iheanacho should be the main target in the final third.
England vs Nigeria: Head-to-head
This will only be the third head to head encounter between England and Nigeria.
Interestingly, only one goal was seen in last two meetings and it ended up in Nigeria’s net back in a friendly in 1994.
The clash at the World Cup in Korea/Japan back in 2002 ended in a goalless draw.
England: D W D D W
Nigeria: D L W L W
