England Vs. Nigeria

218 Views Comment Off

Nigeria will face fellow 2018 FIFA World Cup finalists England at Wembley ahead of this summer’s tournament in Russia. The three-time African Cup of Nations champions will provide an important test for Gareth Southgate’s squad as the Three Lions finalise preparations for group games with Tunisia, Panama and Belgium at the World Cup.

The match should provide an electric atmosphere within the stadium, with lots of support for both nations and a highly anticipated 5.15pm Saturday kick-off in early summer.

England have met Nigeria on two previous occasions at senior level, a 1-0 friendly victory at Wembley in 1994 when David Platt scored the winner, before sharing a goalless draw at the 2002 World Cup finals in Japan.
