  • England plays friendly against Nigeria before jetting off to the World Cup

The goal may have stemmed from dubious circumstances, but it was no doubt deserved and England quickly set about pressing their advantage home with another corner, causing problems just five minutes later when John Stones nearly capitalised on a handling error from Uzoho.

However, he did provide the pass for captain Harry Kane to double England's lead after 39 minutes as his shot slipped under the body of Nigeria goalkeeper Francis Uzoho.

Although Alli was born in Milton Keynes, he was eligible to play for either England or Nigeria due to his parents birth locations.

Although England held on for victory it was still not a performance worthy of being World Cup champions. The 23-year-old has had a tumultuous week, but didn't help himself as he threw his body to the floor in an attempt to win a penalty while the score was 2-1.

"I thought England played very well in the first-half against a poor Nigeria side", he told the BBC.

"We can know where we are and now we go back to training and try and improve". "After 10 minutes we got to grips with their shape and managed the game well".

Trump Lawyers: A President Cannot Obstruct Justice
Rudy Giuliani may be part of President Trump's legal team, but some are wondering which side he is actually on. Should have told me!" Trump would find little sympathy from Republicans in the Senate if he did so.

Apart from the 23 players, Technical Adviser Rohr has for company in camp, assistant coaches Salisu Yusuf, Jean-Luc Royer, Imama Amapakabo, Alloy Agu, Enrico Pionetti and Bernard Gines.

England opened the scoring early on, after Nigeria went a man light, following Leon Balogun's clash of heads.

"So credit to him he has had to come over that but it is to be expected for whatever reason. We were excellent in the first half and created a lot of chances", he said.

"In the first half our usual formation didn't work".

"This bad beginning was an opportunity to change and play a bit more like England in the second half".

"I think the pace in the team, you can feel it, and that is why we had some problems in the first half".
