Goals From Gary Cahill And Harry Kane Ensures England Edge Past The Super Eagles 2-1 Despite Alex Iwobi Strike

Share This

Super Eagles were narrowly beaten 2-1 by the Three Lions of England in Saturday’s international friendly match at Wembley Stadium in preparation for the World Cup.

This is England’s first outing since manager Gareth Southgate named his 23-man squad for the tournament, and one of just two games left before they get their campaign underway against Tunisia on June 18.

England took the lead in the 7th minutes through Gary Cahill before Harry Kane doubled their lead in the 34th minutes to give them a comfortable at halftime.

However, Nigeria reduced the scoreline when Alex Iwobi scored from an Odion Ighalo’s shot in the 47th minutes.

All efforts to equal proved abortive as both teams settled and could not add to their goals.

The Super Eagles next face Czech Republic on Tuesday in their final warm-up match before the World Cup.

Nigeria also only have two games left before they travel to Russia, where they will come up against Argentina, Croatia and Iceland in Group D.
