Talking Points From England 2-1 Nigeria

World Cup places up for grabs says England boss Southgate

First-half goals from Gary Cahill and Harry Kane gave England a 2-1 win over Nigeria in a World Cup warm-up friendly at Wembley. Pickford's vision was then blocked as Iwobi stepped up to half the deficit in the early exchanges of the second half.

England got off to a great start against Nigeria today, taking the lead in the 6th minute through a Gary Cahill header. England vs Nigeria is a substantial first test for the Three Lions, and we can tell you how to get a live stream of the friendly for free wherever you live. The second is that while qualification for the 2022 World Cup should not prove too great a hurdle, England as yet have no idea who they will find in their group or how hard progress might be.

At half-time Nigeria were 2-0 down and playing poorly. Odion Ighalo controlled an aerial pass and turned to whip his shot against the post, with the ricochet landing invitingly for Iwobi.

It's imperative that Nigeria don't let England settle into this rhythm and ensure that they break up the home side's attempts to establish their dominance in the heart of the midfield and control the game. Nigeria's problems against the crossed ball may not bode well for them.

It will be interesting to see where Lingard fits in Southgate's expected three-at-the-back system, but is being tipped to start over Tottenham Hotspur star Dele Alli if he goes with one man behind two strikers.

This means that while Nigeria should be wary of their opponents, they mustn't be afraid of England, and should feel confident that they have the talent to secure a positive result in front of what should be a sizeable Nigerian fanbase.

Moses came off to be replaced by Ahmed Musa and England changes followed soon afterwards, Ruben Loftus-Cheek replacing Lingard and Danny Rose on for Ashley Young.

'What was really worrying was when they changed their shape and we went into our shell a little bit.

Having experienced former England team-mates Nobby Stiles and Mike Summerbee being affected by the disease, Hurst hopes to play his part in helping raise funds for research into prostate cancer, which kills one man every 45 minutes.

Eagles Head Coach Gernot Rohr has revealed that injured Moses Simon would not be fit to merit a berth in the final 23-man squad for the Russian Federation 2018 FIFA World Cup.
