England vs Nigeria
NGA vs ENG Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
With the World cup on the horizon, both these teams will be looking to make the most of their warm-up games ahead of the Football’s Showpiece event. For England, this is their first friendly match followed by Costa Rica on Friday. While Nigeria have already lined up against Congo DR and will be facing England and the Czech Republic in the final two fixtures.
To some extent, England’s opponents in their warm-up games are a mirror image of the teams they will be facing in the group stages. So we may get some impression about how Gareth Southgate may line-up against Panama and Tunisia when the World Cup finally kicks-off.
These games also give Southgate an opportunity to give the youngsters like Nick Pope and Trent Alexander-Arnold some precious game-time to get an idea if the youngsters are good enough to emulate their club success at the very highest level.
Southgate is opting for a three-man defensive wall with Harry Kane as the lone striker. So far, this set-up has produced some good display as the Three Lions have kept four clean sheets in the last five games.
With some proven Premier League talent like Victor Moses, Wilfried Ndidi, Alex Iwobi, and Kelechi Iheanacho in their ranks, Nigeria know they are no pushover and could even upset the biggest of the teams if they play to their potential.

NGA vs ENG Dream11 TEAM NEWS: Injury and Suspension
England vs Nigeria:
England: With just two practice games ahead of the World Cup, Gareth Southgate has got little time to figure out his best team. But we are expecting the manager to name a strong XI in this game with the likes of Kyle Walker, John Stones, Raheem Sterling, and Harry Kane all likely to start. The uncapped Nick Pope and Trent Alexander-Arnold could be given a chance to prove their worth, whilst Ruben Loftus-Cheek could replace Jordan Henderson at the heart of the midfield after Liverpool captain returned late due to his appearance in the final of the Champions League.
Nigeria: Former Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel is the captain of Nigeria and is expected to lead his country come the World Cup. There are lots of familiar names in this Nigerian set-up with the likes of Ahmed Musa, Odion Ighalo, Alex Iwobi, and Kelechi Iheanacho, Wilfried Ndidi and Victor Moses are familiar names.
