England To Play Nigeria And Costa Rica Ahead Of World Cup by ogbiwa: 6:59am On Jan 11
England will play Nigeria at Wembley and Costa Rica at Elland Road in their final friendly matches ahead of this summer's World Cup.
Nigeria will visit on 2 June while England will face Costa Rica at Leeds United's ground on 7 June.
England's first match at the World Cup is against Tunisia on 18 June.

Gareth Southgate's side also face Costa Rica's central American neighbours Panama in Russia, with Belgium completing Group G.

The England manager said: "We're going into a World Cup where we will play African and Central American opposition, so we get that with the games against Nigeria and Costa Rica, but it's not just about the games we've got in the group but hopefully beyond that as well.

"We want to expose the team to different styles and different experiences."

If England like, let it play against other planets, it won't go anywhere in this world cup.

England is piece of cake.
They couldn't beat a bunch of Scandinavian fishermen in the last European championship.

Sadly, we don't expect Tammy and Solanke on the English team....by then, Southgate would have separated the grain from the chaff and posers will not make the team

I can only see one team there being Costa Rica , the rest teams England and Nigeria are overhyped, over corrupt, not organize and overrated trash of teams, the are just a country version of Fulham and Crystapalace.

I rather fall inlove with Pocochantas which the possibility is 1% than using 90mins of my time to watch England vs Nigeria.

That 4-2 win against Argentina has really helped to hype the super Eagles. The disadvantage is that opponents will be hyper-prepared whenever they play Nigeria not knowing that the 4-2 is a copied assignment which Even our coach can't explain grin grin grin grin grin

A win in this encounter will send a signal to the Argentine and Croatian national teams so I expect the Super Eagles to give their all
BTW
I don't know what gives me this unusual confidence that Naija will lift the cup in Moscow, anyone with same feeling?

The only thing i know is that HARRY KANE is deadly.

He can single-handedly make a team lose against England even if England don't play well.
