Nigeria World Cup kit sold out minutes after release

'Twas ever thus, though admittedly body-art representations of assault rifles are something new, but what is conspicuously absent from the buildup this time is the old fashioned "England expects" note of patriotic fervour.

Nigeria's full-backs - particularly Ola Aina, Tyronne Ebuehi and Brian Idowu - love to push forward and join the attack, but against England, they must be wary of Sterling's pace and pick their moments to press forward very carefully.

England began terrifically. Francis Uzoho repelled Trippier's sixth-minute free kick, but it only preserved parity for a few seconds.

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.

He now wears Dele on his shirt for Tottenham and England.

Ahead of Saturday's global friendly between Nigeria and England, ex-Zambia assistant coach and Queens Park Rangers opposition analyst Irfan Kawri assesses the Three Lions' strengths and weaknesses. Pickford's vision was then blocked as Iwobi stepped up to half the deficit in the early exchanges of the second half.

He will announce his final 23-man squad for Russian Federation 2018 after this England game.

It's between Kieran Trippier and Trent Alexander-Arnold as England's starting right wing-back this summer, with the former set to be given the nod on account of his experience.

That leaves Chelsea captain Gary Cahill and Leicester's Harry Maguire likely to fight for the other spot.

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

It was that kind of evening for Southgate, with pluses and negatives in equal measure. "It will nearly be like a cup final, or even a World Cup final, with all the different colours from different teams - and uniting everybody against this awful disease".

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. "Nigeria are playing at 30-40%".

But the Nigeria keeper was beaten from the resulting corner as Gary Cahill rose to send a header beyond him and the defender on the line.
