England show World Cup promise in home victory over Nigeria

England show their strengths and weaknesses against Nigeria

Everton ace Pickford was in goal for England's 2-1 win over Nigeria in Saturday's friendly at Wembley.

Wales manager Ryan Giggs has questioned whether England have the quality in midfield to make a major impact at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

However, star striker Kane insisted Gareth Southgate's men can cause problems at the tournament.

Tottenham and England forward Harry Kane has been rated as the most valuable player in world football a study by the CIES Football Observatory has revealed.

"For some reason, not a lot of us or not a lot of us believe in it". Obviously there is a long way to go, but yeah, we've just got to do what we done today. It is always hard but I think in the second half we played with five in the back as well to try and match them and that's what we did.

Mikel Agu, Moses Simon and Ola Aina failed to make the final cut, but they could be called upon when Nigeria continues her 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier later this year. "I think the England team have a good chance". "I feel I learned from the things I've done before, but it's not something I worry about at all", said Alli. "When you look at the top teams, they've all got real top quality in midfield and that's what they're probably missing at the moment".

"How do you play against a team with five in the back?"

On account of what he saw, Mikel believes England "have a good chance" of going all the way in Russian Federation.
