  • Diego Maradona's Argentina saw off Nigeria in 1994

Gareth Southgate's England side played their penultimate friendly ahead of the Russia World Cup against Nigeria at Wembley.

Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr is considering dropping the duo of Onazi Ogenyi and Joel Obi from the squad that will face the Czech Republic in an worldwide friendly on Wednesday. "So, I think the England team have a good chance of getting the quarters, even the semis I think".

14 May was set as deadline for participating member associations to release a list of 30 players, which Nigeria also complied with. "After 10 minutes we got to grips with their shape and managed the game well".

Shortly after the break, however, Nigeria pulled a goal back when Alex Iwobi responded quickest to a rebound off the post.

Nigeria went two-goals down in the first 45 minutes courtesy of a Gary Cahill's header and a bullet of a shot from Harry Kane.

"So, we have to continue to play like this".

'Some slightly better decision making or quality and we would have scored more'.

Former Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel tried his luck from range and forced Pickford into a save with just over 20 minutes remaining, but despite Nigeria's improvement in the second half they were largely limited to such speculative efforts.

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

The England coach picked a strong team and was rewarded with an impressive first-half performance and goals from Kane and Cahill.

"Nevertheless, Raheem has been fantastic with it all, he manages that situation very, very well".

"So credit to him he has had to come over that but it is to be expected for whatever reason".

"I think we played really well with the ball especially, created a lot of good chances, far more good situations than we've had in recent games".
