Dele Alli role may be key to England progress in Russian Federation

FIFA World Cup 2018: Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy, Phil Jones play Kabaddi in training session; watch video

The African side faced off against England on Saturday evening and lost 2-1.

England Manager, Gareth Southgate's having named his provisional 23-man squad for this summer's finals in Russian Federation, will be under pressure to impress in England's final home game at the national stadium before the tournament.

"All the players are ready for the World Cup except for Simon Moses who is out for four weeks", he said.

But overall it was a fairly good performance from the Eagles with one more warm-up match against Czech Republic left before flying to Russian Federation for the FIFA World Cup.

"So, I think the England team have a good chance of getting the quarters, even the semis I think".

Another Indian-American, Atman Balakrishnan, the 12-year-old son of 1985 champion Balu Natarajan, did not advance to the finals. After her defeat, she was swarmed by dozens of current and former spellers who wished her well, smiling throughout.

Gary Cahill headed England ahead in the early stages, before Harry Kane netted later in the first period.

Nigeria's hurt may be enhanced given Alli's success as a growing footballer, signing for Spurs in 2015, and eventually earning his first England senior cap against Estonia in October 2016.

Saturday's friendly kicks off at 18:00 (CAT), and on top of its high-profile nature Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr has suggested that he will pick his likely World Cup starting team to play against Gareth Southgate's England.

"It is to be expected but at the same time it would be nice if it was positive", Cahill said of the stories regarding England players leading into a big tournament.
