See Where The Eagles and Lion will Clash

England have lined up a Wembley friendly against Nigeria as part of their World Cup preparations.

The Super Eagles will be one of two opponents for The Three Lions, the other likely to be against Latin American opposition, before they depart for Russia.
The Football Association wanted England to face African opposition ahead of their World Cup opener against Tunisia in Volgograd on 18 June.
After playing the two friendlies, Gareth Southgate and his squad will fly to Russia and to their training base in Repino, a town just north of St Petersburg, towards the Finnish border. Then they will head to Volgograd to face Tunisia, Nizhny Novgorod for Panama and Kaliningrad to play Belgium on 28 June.

The Football Association earlier wanted Three Lions to face Senegal but dropped the idea after they realized they could face in the last-16 depending on their standings in the groups.
