Nigeria, who were beaten 2-1 by England in a friendly match at Wembley on Friday, face Czech Republic on Wednesday, before beginning their World Cup campaign against Croatia on June 16.

And England started the match impressively.

While England fans would have been pleased with the first 45 minutes, one man wasn't quite as impressed.

Sterling went in the book for taking an unnecessary tumble in the box and Eric Dier rose to head wide as England sought to reassert themselves.

Kane netted what proved to be a decisive second goal as England defeated Nigeria 2-1 at Wembley. "We have to work much more in the two weeks before our first game", the German said.

"In the first half our usual formation didn't work".

Rohr made four changes at the break and the substitutions were having an immediate impact as the Super Eagles had England on the ropes inside the hour-mark.

Rohr, who revealed why he did not feature the combative midfielder against the Three Lions, has affirmed that the youngster will play a part when the three-time African champions take on Karel Jarolim's men.

"The first lesson is we are not ready yet".

The coach added he would decide by Monday whether to give Jack Butland a start as England goalkeeper for the final pre-World Cup friendly against Costa Rica on June 7, but he spoke highly of Jordan Pickford's performance on Saturday. You just look forward to making a good outing in the next game.

"Even though Arsenal and Tottenham have this rivalry, he is a good friend and I know he is a good person but if we do have one against them I will let him know for sure", Iwobi told KweséESPN. That was two minutes into the second half and the Eagles finally had lifted off.

He said: 'I think we played really well, with the ball especially.

Southgate has yet to settle on his preferred starting XI and fielded Jesse Lingard alongside fellow attacking midfielder Dele Alli on Saturday, providing England with pace and creativity that led to a string of first-half chances.
