Rohr, Southgate thrilled with England/Nigeria friendly

England last played at Elland Road in 2002 when they lost to Italy

Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr believes England will give his players the ideal test of their readiness for the World Cup when they meet in a friendly in June.

The pre-tournament warm-up has been scheduled to take place at the Wembley Stadium in London on Saturday, 2 June, 2018, according to an NFF press release on Wednesday.

England have met Nigeria on two previous occasions with a 1-0 victory at Wembley in 1994 and a goalless draw at the 2002 World Cup finals in Japan. "But it's not just about the games we've got in the group, it's hopefully beyond that as well".

"We want to expose the team to different styles and different experiences".

Akinwunmi who is also the chairman of the federation's Organizing Committee said. England are very strong now and I believe they will give us a very good match. "Certainly, it is going to be a big match, between two countries of remarkable historical affinity and similarities", added NFF vice-president Seyi Akinwunmi.

"We have other matches and programmes for the team, and we will soon roll out the entire plan for matches, camping sites and training camps, " he said in the statement.

Southgate's team, who made it to the finals with an unbeaten record during the qualifying campaign, are due to play the Netherlands in Amsterdam on March 27 before facing fellow World Cup absentees Italy at Wembley four days later.
