  • England Hungary 2006 World Cup

Nigeria's Alex Iwobi and Ola Aina have promised to bombard Dele Alli with banter, hoping that it will help the Super Eagles beat England in their friendly worldwide on Saturday.

The 47-year-old said his team on Saturday was close to England's likely starting 11 when they open their World Cup campaign against Group G opponents Tunisia in Volgograd on June 18. In the first half when we had chances, we can't lose our confidence because a team changed their formation'. Far more good situations than in recent games.

The goal may have stemmed from dubious circumstances, but it was no doubt deserved and England quickly set about pressing their advantage home with another corner, causing problems just five minutes later when John Stones nearly capitalised on a handling error from Uzoho.

His comments sparked outrage in Italy, with Salvini blasting them as "racist" in his victory speech Thursday in northern Lombardy. Later, the president asked ex-IMF economist Mr Cottarelli to form a government until fresh elections could be held.

But, the England manager insisted his player's adjusted to the new formation and were unlucky not to score more goals. But after that we dealt with it well. "I thought we used the ball well and were a threat going forward", said Southgate. It was a decent exercise for us to adjust to that.

"Dele [Alli] and Jesse [Lingard] made unselfish runs".

If we can win our first game, I am sure we can get to the quarterfinals.

Facebook is removing the the trending news feature next week
Facebook introduced a feature called Trending in 2014, and you can probably guess what it did even if you never touch Facebook. How the platform approached its role as a news disseminator has sparked heavy criticism across a number of different groups.

The centre-back forced his way back into the Chelsea side and ended the season captaining the team to FA Cup glory over Manchester United at Wembley.

"The first half we felt comfortable, moved the ball quickly and dominated but a lack of concentration early in the second half let us down".

Southgate still has time to work on those tactical issues as England have one more friendly - against Costa Rica in Leeds on Thursday - before they fly to Russian Federation for their Group G opener against Tunisia in Volgograd on June 18.
