"That was as good a half as we've had, I think", Southgate said after England's 2-1 win at Wembley in their penultimate friendly before flying to Russian Federation.

A hamstring problem prevented the holding midfielder from the Foxes' final three matches of the season but Rohr said the 21-year-old would start the team's final pre-World Cup friendly against Czech Republic on Wednesday.

On account of what he saw, Mikel believes England "have a good chance" of going all the way in Russian Federation.

John Obi Mikel has payed England a massive compliment after the side's 2-1 win over Nigeria.

The goal lifted the Super Eagles, who started to knock the ball around with more confidence.

Nigeria captain John Obi Mikel saw enough from England on Saturday to consider Gareth Southgate's team potential World Cup winners.

'Some slightly better decision making or quality and we would have scored more'.


Nigeria went two-goals down in the first 45 minutes courtesy of a Gary Cahill's header and a bullet of a shot from Harry Kane.

Former Super Eagles coach, Augustine Eguavoen, has stated that the team assembled by Coach Gernot Rohr is deficient for the World Cup, slated to start on June 14, in Russian Federation.

In the the first two minutes of the second half, the Green and White men were fired up as Alex Iwobi who started a move completed the finished after Odion Ighalo's strike initially hit the upright.

Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi has been named in Nigeria's 23-man squad for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

I don't think we got a lot of answers though because Nigeria just lay down in the first period and let England do what they want.

"So credit to him he has had to come over that but it is to be expected for whatever reason".

"He can be very pleased with his performance". We were excellent in the first half and created a lot of chances.
