Worldwide friendly match report England v Nigeria 02 June 2018

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

His early goal was a positive start for the Three Lions and he helped organise England's defence and ensured they didn't capitulate after conceding after 47 minutes.

It took them just two minutes after the restart to get their goal.

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

Rohr kept faith with his goalkeeping trio Francis Uzoho, Daniel Akpeyi and Ikechukwu Ezenwa, naming them in the squad alongside Euro-born quartet Leon Balogun, William Troost-Ekong, Bryan Idowu and Tyronne Ebuehi.

England have been pitted in Group G with dark horses Belgium, Tunisia, and debutants Panama but fans are sceptical about the country's chances following a disastrous 2014 campaign.

Iwobi's goal was Nigeria's first against England in three games while the Three Lions keep their record of not losing to an African side.

Ruthless Nadal breezes into last 16
The top-seeded Romanian has never lost to Petkovic, and four of her seven wins have been on clay. Williams made only three unforced errors in the opening set, 12 in all.

Another opening came and went as Sterling fired over the crossbar before Kane got the second, his skidding effort somehow sneaking past the goalkeeper.

Alex Iwobi woke up Nigeria immediately in the second stanza, pulling a goal back a minute after the break with a clinical strike, following up Ighalo's shot that hit the upright, 2-1.

Sterling went in the book for taking an unnecessary tumble in the box and Eric Dier rose to head wide as England sought to reassert themselves.

Nigeria's next friendly is against Czech Republic on Wednesday in Vienna. "By the time I was leaving, they had run out of stock again".

"The Nigeria match presents fresh opportunity to express the potential of the national team". The 23-year-old has had a tumultuous week, but didn't help himself as he threw his body to the floor in an attempt to win a penalty while the score was 2-1.

- England scored as many goals in the opening 39 minutes against Nigeria as they had in their previous four global friendlies. His miss timed tackle gave Harry Kane the leverage to fire home the second goal of the match.
