Iwobi’s second-half goal not enough as Super Eagles lose friendly

Messi celebrates scoring against Nigeria

Both players did not feature in the 2-1 defeat to England in a friendly affair in London on Saturday, meaning Rohr had made a decision to chop them from the squad before the encounter.

Although Alli was born in Milton Keynes, he was eligible to play for either England or Nigeria due to his parents birth locations.

John Obi Mikel had a crack at goal for the visitors 20 minutes before time but Pickford was on hand to keep out the midfielder's long range strike.

His early goal was a positive start for the Three Lions and he helped organise England's defence and ensured they didn't capitulate after conceding after 47 minutes.

England continued their Federation Internationale de Football Association 2018 World Cup preparations with a 2-1 worldwide friendly win over Nigeria at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

Nigeria was looking for a second goal right until the final whistle with England working hard to see out the match, but ultimately it was the hosts who claimed a hard-fought win in preparation for the upcoming World Cup in Russian Federation.

England found the going tougher in the second half against an improved Nigeria but held on for victory in their penultimate friendly before the World Cup.

"In the first half we didn't well but in the second half we did better and we knew we could play like that", Mikel said in a post-match video interview with Soccer Nation.

Trippier claimed the assist for England's opening goal when his corner was headed home by Gary Cahill, and Southgate said: "His quality on the ball is outstanding. I think the England team have a good chance". He has kept working hard, kept his focus and I think you saw a performance that, apart from scoring a goal, he was very lively.

"So credit to him he has had to come over that but it is to be expected for whatever reason". We were excellent in the first half and created a lot of chances.
