England vs Nigeria: Southgate reacts to 2-1 win against Super Eagles

Five predictions for England’s World Cup prep games vs Nigeria and Costa Rica FIFA World Cup 2018: Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy, Phil Jones play Kabaddi in training session; watch video

Gary Cahill (C) of England heads for the ball during the International Friendly Football match between England and Nigeria at Wembley Stadium in London, Britain on June 2, 2018.

That result and performance just confirms that Gareth Southgate's men are extremely unlikely to win their second World Cup title.

While some observers believe the 25-year-old is competing for the same spot in the England side as Tottenham's Alli, Southgate says that isn't the case.

"I think the pace in the team, you can feel it, and that is why we had some problems in the first half".

England lacked the zip from the early stages in the second half as regular substitutions broke up the rhythm of the game, with Danny Rose, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Marcus Rashford, Fabian Delph and Danny Welbeck all appearing from the bench.

The Manchester City star delivered a lively display in his side's 2-1 World Cup warm-up win, although he was booked in the second half for diving.

Nigeria's hurt may be enhanced given Alli's success as a growing footballer, signing for Spurs in 2015, and eventually earning his first England senior cap against Estonia in October 2016.

Her Democratic challenger is Phil Bredesen, the mayor of Nashville from 1991-99 and state governor from 2003 through 2010. Trump said. "They're not human beings". "That's the worst thing that can happen", he said.

Nigeria was looking for a second goal right until the final whistle with England working hard to see out the match, but ultimately it was the hosts who claimed a hard-fought win in preparation for the upcoming World Cup in Russian Federation.

The inclusion of some players drew fierce criticism, especially Joel Obi and the experienced Ogenyi Onazi who both had poor games against England on Saturday.

"We will try to see the team that has the chance of starting the World Cup against Croatia". In the game against Congo, we didn't play our best team, but we will change things against England and play our best players.

"We created a lot of good chances, far more than in recent games".

"It was awesome 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". Let us know what you think in the comments section.

The midfielder took responsibility for the error but explains that Nigeria's first half formation left the midfield isolated.

They will play the Czech Republic in a friendly on June 6 before heading off to Russian Federation on June 11 where they will face Croatia, Iceland and Argentina in the Group phase.
