It came before Raheem Sterling was booked for diving in the 2-1 victory over Nigeria at Wembley.

Of Wolves' Ikeme, 31, who last played first-team football in March 2017 and may have proved the solution for a team often accused of lacking a convincing goalkeeper, Rohr added: "There is also the opportunity to have a think about our sick goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme".

"The problem we had yesterday was the formation, it was not going really right".

"We are a very young team and we have to learn, it is good for this young team to have a taste of what we are going to face in Russia", Mikel said. The most positive thing from the game was our second half performance, especially the players who came into the midfield. "We had the ball unlike the first half when we were running after the ball".

Their manager Gernot Rohr also knows they have a friendly against the Czech Republic on Wednesday, but their captain John Obi Mikel, Wilfred Ndidi, Victor Moses, Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho will be among those expected to start.

Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi pulled one back for the Super Eagles two minutes after the break.

Mikel knows Nigeria have to sharpen up in Russian Federation if they to get through a tough group featuring Argentina, Iceland and Croatia. "We have to work much more in the two weeks before our first game", the German said.

"We will try to see the team that has the chance of starting the World Cup against Croatia. I think the England team have a good chance".
