Super Eagles stars

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has confirmed its proposed plan for an international friendly between the Super Eagles and England.

Both nations could square off in June, few weeks before the FIFA World Cup begins in Russia.

“We plan to play a friendly against England in June before the World Cup,” NFF General Secretary, Dr Mohammed Sanusi, was quoted by ScoreNigeria.

The venue and other details are expected to be finalised soon, the NFF scribe further said.

Nigeria are drawn in Group D alongside two Europeans sides, Iceland and Croatia as well as Argentina.

Whereas the Three Lions will slog it out in Group G, in the company of Belgium, Panama and Tunisia.

Both countries have clashed just twice in history.

The first was a test game before the 1994 World Cup, with the Europeans coming out tops 1-0.

The last meeting was at the 2002 World Cup in Korea/Japan, which ended in a goalless stalemate.
