Nigeria’s Super Eagles are set to play England in a World Cup warm-up game in June, 2018.
General Secretary of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Mohammed Sanusi, who disclosed this, said the venue and other details of the match are still to be worked out.
Both Nigeria and England will feature at next year’s World Cup in Russia.
The Super Eagles are drawn in Group D along with Argentina, Croatia and Iceland, while England is in Group G with Belgium, Panama and Tunisia.
Both countries have clashed once at this level, in November 1995, when England won 1-0 at Wembley courtesy of a David Platt headed goal.
Sanusi also said the Super Eagles will play at least one friendly before Russia 2018 in Abuja to show the team’s appreciation for the support of both the Nigerian government and people.Please subscribe to our newsletter
