England to play Nigeria, Costa Rica in World Cup warm-ups

Melba Vasquez | 14 Января, 2018, 18:53

England will play two warm-up games in June before flying to Russian Federation, with the Football Association also set to confirm a Wembley friendly against Nigeria on June 2.

Rohr told the nff.com official website:"This is good news for myself and the entire team".

With Tunisia and Panama among the World Cup group G opponents, the Nigeria and Costa Rica games will be a vital opportunity for Southgate to try tactics against non-European sides.

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.

England will conclude pool play against Group G top seeds Belgium on Jun 28.

He also confirmed his side would confront Central American side Costa Rica on June 6 and noted that he carefully chose the matches because of the pedigree of the two teams. We had been doing a lot of work in the background, even going back to past year. "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 want to expose the team to different styles and different experiences", he said.

Akinwunmi added: "We chose to be strategic in our choice of opponents for the Super Eagles leading to the World Cup, and in total agreement with the preferences of the Technical Adviser".

In his words: "We've mostly played European oppositions".
