Seventeen of the 23 players picked by the German manager were in action at Wembley Stadium, with Mikel Obi, Kenneth Omeruo, Ogenyi Onazi and Ahmed Musa, who represented Nigeria at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, heading to Russian Federation to appear at the finals for the second time.

Ian KINGTON / AFP Nigeria's striker Ahmed Musa (L) vies with England's defender Danny Rose during the worldwide friendly football match between England and Nigeria at Wembley stadium in London on June 2, 2018.

Kane continued his fine goalscoring form in an England shirt, taking his tally to six goals in five games when he has worn the captain's armband.

England have been pitted in Group G with dark horses Belgium, Tunisia, and debutants Panama but fans are sceptical about the country's chances following a disastrous 2014 campaign.

England pipped the Super Eagles 2-1 in Saturday's friendly at Wembley Stadium.

"I think we played really well with the ball especially, created a lot of good chances, far more good situations than we've had in recent games".

Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, making only his third global appearance, hardly had a save to make in the first half. Now we are trying to play other systems, I think it is going to get better.

He wrote: "One good thing about this England side that they r so bad that no one is expecting anything from them this Worldcup for the first time since 1966!"

England play their final warm-up game against Costa Rica at Elland Road, Leeds on Thursday, 7 June.

With the second half in consideration, Super Eagles remarkable improvements under Rohr continues.

"We don't think it was the moment for him to play but he will start the next game but I hope if he plays against Czech Republic, he will be fit and ready on June 16".
