Elsewhere on Saturday, England's big group rivals in Russia, Belgium, were held to a 0-0 stalemate by Portugal, while Sweden and Denmark also played out a goalless draw.

Ian Wright admitted England's performance against Nigeria was "worrying" despite the fact the Three Lions came away with a win.

"Even though Arsenal and Tottenham have this rivalry, he is a good friend and I know he is a good person but if we do have one against them I will let him know for sure", Iwobi told KweséESPN.

Meanwhile, England's opening World Cup opponents Tunisia continued their preparations for Russian Federation 2018 on Friday, with a draw against Turkey. "I think the England team have a good chance". "Unfortunately we can't change four players if there is a problem in the World Cup".

A player like John Ogu should come in for Onazi subsequently.

Lingard was unable to connect to a Tripper ball from the right and after a superb save from Uzoho to deny Sterling, who was again in on goal on 38 minutes but fired over - the Manchester City man set up Kane for England's second.

Giuliani told The Washington Post , "We need all the documents before we can decide whether we are going to do an interview". The former New York City mayor also said the President is "adamant" about doing a sit-down interview with Mueller.

England dominated the first-half, and took the lead after just seven minutes, with Gary Cahill powering home a header from a corner.

The Three Lions kick off their World Cup campaign in Russian Federation against Tunisia on June 18 and also play Panama and Belgium in Group "G".

It is largely because of Alli that the 65-year-old Villa expects England to have a good tournament, but he does not consider them among its favourites, and instead believes that reaching the quarter-finals would represent a success.

Nigeria were sloppy during the first half and their limp performance in the opening 45 minutes was embodied by Uzoho's blunder, the Deportivo La Coruna goalie allowing Kane's central strike to slip from his grasp.

"The game will be a hard one because they parade some of the best legs in the English Premier League, but we also have guys who have played there and are still playing there, so we will put up a good fight and come out with a victory", Simy concluded. Last week in Port Harcourt we played Simy and saw what he can offer to the team. Victor Moses was the last to arrive camp and he has had just one training session with us and will have another today (Friday).
