"Nigeria are one of the few teams that could actually handle his pace but I thought he was very bright and his movement was good".

As expected, captain Harry Kane leads the England attack with Jesse Lingard also in support, while Dele Alli has been given the nod in the centre of midfield with Eric Dier.

Summarising the match, Southgate said: "Firstly, yes, really pleased with the first half. However, we have three goalkeepers", he said. We were then able to win the ball back with our pressing. The period leading up to their goal, they changed their system and we took some time to adjust.

"It will be an interesting game for us".

With Kyle Walker set to be used in a three-man defence, Trippier has the ideal chance to nail down the starting spot for the Three Lions this summer and after the furore of England's disappointing set-piece taking quality at Euro 2016 - the thought of Harry Kane on corners is enough to make any England fan shudder - the 27-year-old has earned his right to be on set-piece duty in Russian Federation.

"It was a great header and we have been working on set-plays. Kieran Trippier's ball in was brilliant".

The England chief continued: "The second half, it would be easy to say we were complacent".

If we try such in Nigeria (using a youth team for that competition) they will nearly lynch the coach. 'Twas ever thus, though admittedly body-art representations of assault rifles are something new, but what is conspicuously absent from the buildup this time is the old fashioned "England expects" note of patriotic fervour. I don't think that was the case. So credit to him.

20' FREEKICK! Young (England) is clipped by Onazi and the home side have another free-kick in a good position.

"Spain play nice football and have great players, and I expect Germany to be there, and Argentina in the last four".

No goals though would come despite the promising spells, leaving England to walk away with the victory in their penultimate pre-World Cup warm-up showdown.

No official data has been released yet, but clear proof of the popularity of the shirt was the queue that formed outside Nike's Oxford Street store in London on Friday, ahead of the friendly between Nigeria and England in Wembley this evening.
