Lingard to start for England in Nigeria friendly

Eagles’ BEST Eleven Ahead Of World Cup Clashes In Russia

Eagles’ BEST Eleven Ahead Of World Cup Clashes In Russia

Gary Cahill and Raheem Sterling are both handed starts in England's friendly worldwide with Nigeria at Wembley Stadium.

The fact he feels no real affinity for his father is reflected in his decision to his forename on the back of his shirt.

Ian Wright admitted England's performance against Nigeria was "worrying" despite the fact the Three Lions came away with a win.

The 47-year-old said his team on Saturday was close to England's likely starting 11 when they open their World Cup campaign against Group G opponents Tunisia in Volgograd on June 18.

Simon was initially ruled out of the World Cup by Head Coach Gernot Rohr after the player's first scan results confirmed he would be out of the tournament.

"It was a great occasion for myself to go over there and see them play live and the atmosphere", Maguire said.

Alli is not new to controversy, though, as Federation Internationale de Football Association once banned the England midfielder for one global match following his middle-finger gesture in the 2018 World Cup qualifier against Slovakia late 2017.

"So I'm optimistic, as usual, that we will do well - I can't think any other way". They're more compact, concede less goals.

Nigeria scored early in the second half in part thanks to England dropping back, and Wright said that was a "worrying" sign heading into the finals in Russian Federation.

He was a lot brighter when he played as a wingback in the second half after a subdued showing in the first period as England tore through the Eagles defence at will.

"But it's a dream come true for myself to represent England, so it's a really proud moment".

Yet the main reason for urging the present squad to go for broke is because the fallow year argument is just the negative flip-side of the old, discredited, golden generation theory.

'We don't want to do that.

- Alex Iwobi's goal was the first Nigeria have ever scored in an global match against England, in what is the third meeting between the two nations.

Southgate must hope, however, that England - and in particular Raheem Sterling - can find a ruthless edge to take some of the weight off Kane, whose goal was his eighth in his last seven worldwide appearances. You do need good players, you will not get far without them, but you also need confidence and something best described as stickability or tournament savvy.

Kane's England position has never been in doubt, his status cemented by his confirmation as World Cup captain, and another goal here simply emphasised that he goes to Russian Federation as Southgate's main threat and great goalscoring hope.
