England’s World Cup 2018 preparations continue in earnest as Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions take on Nigeria at Wembley.
For Gareth Southgate’s side, with their 23 man squad now formally announced and the European leagues coming to an end, all eyes are now on what England can produce at this summers World Cup finals. After going through their whole qualifying campaign unbeaten, England have elected to test themselves against the best international sides and while their 1-0 win over Holland maybe their only victory in their last four, England have now drawn against Germany, Brazil and Italy, and they have also managed to keep a clean sheet in five of their last six. Along with appearing to improve on their previous defensive issues, England’s new captain Harry Kane has enjoyed a stellar year at the other end of the pitch and managed 30 Premier League goals last year, along with scoring in each of his last four matches as captain.
As for Salisu Yusuf’s Nigeria side, after only losing one match in their CAF Third Round group, The Super Eagles booked their spot in Russia this summer and will be sharing a group with Argentina, Iceland and Croatia. As for their form of late, despite reaching the final of this years African Nations Championship and tipped by many as the favorite, Nigeria suffered a humbling 4-0 defeat to Morocco and are now coming off the back of a draw with Congo DR and also lost their previous friendly to Serbia 2-0. This will also be the first time since the 2002 World Cup that Nigeria have faced off against England, in that matchup the game ended 0-0 in the group stages.
