Preview: England vs Nigeria friendly match (date, time, venue) released..

 

 

The Super Eagles will be filing out against the England national team at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday, June, 2, in an international friendly.

This will be Gareth Southgate’s first test since he announced his final 23-man list that will play at the World Cup.

On the other hand, Gernot Rohr has just two players to drop from the 25-man team that traveled to London to honour the warm up match against the Three Lions.

 

Both teams have met on three occasions in history as England hold the advantage with a win and two draws, while the Super Eagles are yet to record a victory.

Reports have confirmed that Gent winger, Moses Simon, will not be making the party to the World Cup because of a hamstring injury.

The three-time African champions played out a 1-1 draw against the Democratic Republic of Congo in Port Harcourt.

The team will also be trading tackles with the Czech Republic on June, 6, at the Rudolf Tonn Stadium in Austria.

 

Nigeria have been grouped alongside Argentina, Croatia and Iceland while England will be locking horns with Belgium, Tunisia and Panama.

Meanwhile, there have been a long queue of Nigerian fans waiting to purchase a copy of the Super Eagles jersey in Oxford, London.
