Super Eagles' Iwobi, Aina promise Dele Alli hell

Five predictions for England’s World Cup prep games vs Nigeria and Costa Rica

That comes against Costa Rica - also Russia- bound - at Leeds on Thursday night.

While the spotlight was invariably on Sterling, Cahill stood out as the Chelsea defender made his first England start since October.

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

Nigeria was looking for a second goal right until the final whistle with England working hard to see out the match, but ultimately it was the hosts who claimed a hard-fought win in preparation for the upcoming World Cup in Russian Federation.

Alli, who has a Nigerian father, didn't seem perturbed and he was soon celebrating when England took a seventh-minute lead.

Goals from Gary Cahill and Harry Kane rewarded England's first-half dominance at Wembley before Nigeria produced an improved display in the second period, pulling one back through Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi.

The breakthrough came after the League and 5-Star agreed to drop economist Paolo Savona as their choice for economy minister. He has promised a tough new policy on migration, which may provoke arguments within Europe.

"I haven't looked at the incident but I thought he worked really hard for us and his counter-attacking was a real problem for the opposition", said Southgate.

Simon is expected to spend at least three weeks on the sidelines, and the decision to leave him out means coach Gernot Rohr now has two more players to drop from his remaining team of 25.

After facing Nigeria, England go up against Costa Rica at Elland Road on Thursday - their final official warm up match before travelling to Russian Federation.

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. "There's been a question mark over whether he can convert what we see from his finishing in training into matches but this year he's done that, so it's a good moment for him".

"You don't come to spectate but at the same time you are part of the team, it is about taking the opportunity and I tried my best to take it", he added.

England's Harry Kane (left) celebrates scoring his side's second goal of the game with Dele Alli during the International Friendly match at Wembley Stadium, London. Nigeria play the Czech Republic in a friendly on June 6. It would be easy to say we were complacent in the second half but that wasn't the case.
