Nigeria Plan to Play England In a World Cup Warm Up Game

The  General Secretary Of Nigeria Football Federation 'Mohammed Sanusi' has revealed that the Nigeria Super Eagles are set to play England in a World Cup warm-up game in June.

"We plan to play a friendly against England in June, before the World Cup," he said, adding that the venue and other details of the match are still to be worked out.

Both England and Nigeria will feature at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The Nigeria side are in Group D along side Argentina, Croatia and Iceland, while England are in Group C with Belgium , Panama and Tunisia.

We could re-call that both teams have clashed once in the World Cup in 1995, England won the game by a goal to nil at Wembley courtesy of a David Platt headed goal.

Sanusi also said the Eagles would play at least one friendly before Russia 2018 in the country's capital ABuja to show the teams's appreciation for the support of both the Nigerian government and People.

Do you think this is a good preparation match for both country...
