As part of preparations for this year's FIFA World Cup in Russia, Nigeria's senior national team, the Super Eagles are scheduled to meet with England in a friendly encounter at the famous Wembley Stadium in London on June 2.

The match will give Nigeria the chance to test their strength against an European opposition before the World Cup, where the country have been drawn in a group containing two European sides in Iceland and Croatia, as well as South American heavyweights Argentina.

England’s first match at the World Cup is against Tunisia on June 18.

Gareth Southgate’s English side also face central American team 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.

“All of the feedback from the team before Euro 2016 was really positive, the players enjoyed it and it was definitely well received by the public,” added Southgate.

“It’s nice when we have an opportunity to take the team on the road.”

Before games against Nigeria and Costa Rica, England will play Netherlands and Italy in March.
