Teams: England v Nigeria
Date: 02 June 2018
England and Nigeria will lock horns in an international friendly at Wembley Stadium this evening.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 18h15.
The Super Eagles have already featured this month in friendlies with Atletico Madrid and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Nigeria head coach Gernot Rohr has also since trimmed his squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup later this month.
England, on the other hand, have not played since their 1-1 draw with Italy back in March.
Tonight's opponents have only met on two previous occasions, with England claiming a 1-0 win in a friendly in 1994, while they played to a 0-0 draw at the 2002 World Cup.
Here's how they line up:
England: Pickford; Walker, Stones, Cahill; Dier; Trippier, Dele, Lingard, Young; Sterling, Kane.
Nigeria: Uzoho, Idowu, Ekong, Balogun, Onazi, Mikel, Obi, Shehu, Moses, Iwobi, Ighalo.
