  • World Cup places up for grabs says England boss Southgate

Bright Omokaro, an ex-international, told NAN that the team performed fairly against the 3 Lions of England.

Saturday's friendly kicks off at 18:00 (CAT), and on top of its high-profile nature Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr has suggested that he will pick his likely World Cup starting team to play against Gareth Southgate's England. Here, we look at the talking points from the contest.

It will be interesting to see where Lingard fits in Southgate's expected three-at-the-back system, but is being tipped to start over Tottenham Hotspur star Dele Alli if he goes with one man behind two strikers.

Sterling seems certain start in England's opening World Cup game against Tunisia, and Southgate intimated that he already knows most of the team that will play in Volgograd.

Raheem Sterling has done enough, both with Premier League champions Manchester City and in a pair of lively England outings in March, to take one attacking slot meaning Jesse Lingard and Dele Alli could be scrapping for the other shirt.

China warns U.S. trade talks will be void if Washington imposes sanctions
The agreement came several weeks after each country threatened to impose $150 billion tariffs on each other's goods and services. China made the statement after talks with a USA delegation led by Commerce Secretary in Beijing on Saturday and Sunday.

It is a system Southgate has experimented with previously and one he could employ in Russian Federation, particularly against Tunisia and Panama, when the onus will be on England to break down their opponents.

Odion Ighalo had the first shot in anger for Nigeria in the 35th minute with a strike at the near post but goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was well positioned to make the save. Indeed, he may favour returning to two holding midfielders against more offensive sides such as Belgium. Uzoho reacted nervously when John Stones glanced a header at his feet and Brian Idowu produced a courageous, last-ditch lunge to deny Ashley Young. But he had been involved in the majority of England's best moves and teed up Kane to lash in England's second just before the break.

A week of controversy also did nothing to stop Sterling diving in an attempt to win a penalty in the 53rd minute, dropping to the floor well before he was met by Uzoho when one-on-one.

"It was a good win against a tough side".

The signs are good for Harry Kane.

England, who also face Panama and Belgium in Group G, qualified for the World Cup easily, winning eight of their 10 matches to finish as unbeaten group winners. It's really important to me to understand their motivations, their thoughts and their feelings on things and to feed back to them on how we see them as players and people.

In the run-up to the World Cup when a national team was being assembled for Nigeria, Alli opted to play for his country of birth, England.

It was a dream start for the Three Lions, who oozed astounding confidence throughout the first half, finding plenty of space to penetrate the Nigerians in all compartments.

"Second half they scored and it puts the pressure on but we got back into it an kept the ball and came back well".

"It was unbelievable to get on the pitch, that's all we work for is to be on the pitch week in, week out, and it was just really nice to get on the pitch and get the win".
