Whilst Saturday’s tie at Wembley will be the first of two checks for the Three Lions, Nigeria have already been in action on Monday playing only a disappointing 1-1 draw to continental rivals Congo DR.
Bouncing back after such a poor showing will be quite a challenging task for Gernot Rohr and his men.
England vs Nigeria: Head-to-Head
This will only be the third head to head encounter between England and Nigeria.
Interestingly, only one goal was seen in last two meetings and it ended up in Nigeria’s net back in a friendly in 1994.
The clash at the World Cup in Korea/Japan back in 2002 ended in a goalless draw.
