Troubled Sterling booked for diving as England down Nigeria

Diego Maradona's Argentina saw off Nigeria in 1994

"But he will start next game against the Czech Republic, and I hope if he played, he will be fit on June 16 (World Cup Group D match vs Croatia)".

The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder started in a deeper midfield position as Gareth Southgate experimented with a 3-5-2, and was the subject of boos whenever he touched the ball. "What it created was a great atmosphere behind our goal for us to defend properly and manage the game which was important".

Both players did not feature in the 2-1 defeat to England in a friendly affair in London on Saturday, meaning Rohr had made a decision to chop them from the squad before the encounter.

But the former Chelsea midfielder has said that the poor showing in the first half was because England played a five-man defence and the Eagles were unable to break them down.

"In the second half we corrected some mistakes and played a lot better. After 10 minutes we got to grips with their shape and managed the game well".

He said: "It is to be expected but at the same time it would be nice if it was positive".

"I will like to thank all my fans for the love, support and prayers during this trying time, you all are incredible people it's just a pity that I couldn't make it to Russian Federation but man proposes but God disposes", Simon wrote on Instagram.

However, he did provide the pass for captain Harry Kane to double England's lead after 39 minutes as his shot slipped under the body of Nigeria goalkeeper Francis Uzoho. So credit to him.

It was a dream start for the Three Lions, who oozed astounding confidence throughout the first half, finding plenty of space to penetrate the Nigerians in all compartments.

After facing Nigeria, England go up against Costa Rica at Elland Road on Thursday - their final official warm up match before travelling to Russian Federation.

"In the first half our usual formation didn't work".

But, the England manager insisted his player's adjusted to the new formation and were unlucky not to score more goals.

"We don't want to do that".
