Super Eagles' Friendly Against England In Pictures

Super Eagles' Friendly Against England In Pictures

Following an inconsistent season with Tottenham and some diffident displays for England, Alli needed to cement his place in Southgate's team and, ignoring the hail of boos, he was making a convincing case.

Reigning world champions Germany were forced to wait almost two hours to kick-off because of torrential rain in Klagenfurt before suffering a shock 2-1 defeat to Austria. Let us know what you think in the comments section.

"But at this point in time it's all about positives vibes from our side and we're looking at the World Cup as a big test for us". "I don't really want to think about the game too much", he added. The team is a young team and that is why we played these friendlies to see how we can improve and for this young team to see what it takes to play in the World Cup.

Alex Iwobi reduced the deficit for Nigeria, who came close to equalising after exposing the flaws in Southgate's three-man defence by repeatedly attacking down the flanks. "Because we have one system", the Trabzonspor midfielder continued.

I like this type of player - every time he gets the ball you can expect something different.

On his first England appearance since October, Cahill headed in the opener in the seventh minute from Kieran Trippier's corner in front of 70,000 fans at Wembley Stadium.

Roy Hodgson led England into Ground D, however, defeats to Italy and Uruguay condemned the team to a rock bottom finish in the group before a 0-0 stalemate with surprise group winners Costa Rica, the worst World Cup performance from an England side since 1958. In the first half when we had chances, we can't lose our confidence because a team changed their formation'.

Overall the match was a real positive for England, but the second-half display shows Southgate still has work to do if his team are to make an impact in Russian Federation.

Gernot Rohr made four changes before the second half as Kenneth Omeruo, Tyronne Ebuehi, John Ogu and Oghenekaro Etebo came on for Leon Balogun, Shehu Abdullahi, Joel Obi and Ogenyi Onazi respectively.

The Super Eagles will play their last friendly game against Czech Republic in Austria on Wednesday and will begin their World Cup campaign against Croatia on 16th of June. "You just need to learn from your mistakes and then you move on", he said.
