  • Messi celebrates scoring against Nigeria

England are due to finish their preparations for the tournament with a friendly against Costa Rica in Leeds on June 7, while Nigeria play Czech Republic in a friendly on June 6.

"We need him (Ndidi) but we had a protocol from Leicester and my friend Claude Puel, who gave me very good information with the medical team", Leicestershire Live quoted the 64-year-old as saying on Sunday.

The area of the pitch subject to the most debate in recent weeks and months has been central midfield.

The goal may have stemmed from dubious circumstances, but it was no doubt deserved and England quickly set about pressing their advantage home with another corner, causing problems just five minutes later when John Stones nearly capitalised on a handling error from Uzoho.

England include unlucky goalkeeper on their bench for pre-World Cup friendly
However, Southgate's selection conundrum in goal remains, even if Pickford conceded against the Super Eagles. England kick off their World Cup campaign on June 18, with their fixture against Tunisia in Volgograd.

Unfortunately the moment that will likely generate the most headlines from this match will be Raheem Sterling's second half simulation. In the period leading up to their goal they changed their system and it took us a little while to figure out how to deal with that.

"The front four, some of the movement and interplay, we looked a threat with plenty of pace", he continued. It was a decent exercise for us to adjust to that.

"It was a good win against a tough side".

"In the second half they scored and it puts the pressure on but we got back into it and kept the ball and came back well".

The album art itself is pure Kanye as it features a landscape with the following tagline: "I hate being Bi-Polar its awesome". The musician submitted a piece sampling You Keep Me Hangin' On by Vanilla Fudge, but heard nothing from Kanye about it.

They stretched a sloppy Nigeria for much of the first half which ended with England 2-0 ahead.

The England camp may be in high spirits after their narrow victory.

England-based Victor Moses, Iwobi and Aina are all in contention to start while Odion Ighalo, John Mikel Obi and Ahmed Musa are also expected to play some part at the 82 000-capacity arena which Alli usually lords over in Tottenham Hotspur colours.

Southgate's side kick off their World Cup campaign on June 18th against Tunisia before facing Panama and Belgium in Group G.
