England vs Nigeria 2 - 1 June 02 2018 World Cup Friendlies

Lionel Messi scoring a free-kick against Nigeria for Argentina in the 2014 World Cup

From the corner in the 10th minute, England got their first goal.

Alli (whose full first name is Bamidele) was eligible to represent the African nation through his Nigerian father, but chose to throw his lot in with England where he was born and has lived all his life. "So, I think the England team have a good chance of getting the quarters, even the semis I think". "Far more good situations than in recent games", he said.

'We were deservedly two goals up in the first half. So maybe they r going to win it this time!

'But after that we dealt with it well.

"What that did mean is that there was a little lift in the game that we had to cope with and manage, and that was a decent exercise for us to adjust to that".

Shortly after, another chance fell to the hosts when Jesse Lingard tried to beat Francis Uzoho at his near post but the latter made a timeous block to keep him out.

Kane continued his fine goalscoring form in an England shirt, taking his tally to six goals in five games when he has worn the captain's armband.

A hamstring problem prevented the holding midfielder from the Foxes' final three matches of the season but Rohr said the 21-year-old would start the team's final pre-World Cup friendly against Czech Republic on Wednesday.

And they got their reward after just seven minutes when Gary Cahill powered in a header from Kieran Trippier's corner.

Step forward former Premier League striker Mido.

The England camp may be in high spirits after their narrow victory.

The Three Lions played host to Nigeria at Wembley Stadium.

This was the famous Wembley, where some of the most iconic football memories were made and there, were Nigerian players, living the dream they never thought will become reality.

"I think the pace in the team you can feel it".

England would hold on in comfortable style to register the win ahead of next week's clash with Costa Rica.

Not since 1966 have England won the World Cup following the country's group-stage exit in 2014.
