England v Nigeria - Official lineups

With the clock ticking down to kick-off, we take a look at the official line-ups for England and Nigeria's World Cup warm-up friendly.

Gareth Southgate named four Tottenham players in his starting lineup, alongside three stars from Premier League winning Manchester City. The big question before the game was who the Three Lions boss would pick between the sticks. Jordan Pickford, expected to be England's No. 1 in Russia, was the chosen one. 

Nigeria's starting XI boasted an array of Premier League talent, with Arsenal's Alex Iwobi and Chelsea's Victor Moses starting upfront and Blues legend John Obi Mikel donning the armband. Should they need them, the Super Eagle's also listed Leicester trio Kelechi Iheanacho, Wilfred Ndidi and Ahmed Musa, who spent last season on loan at CSKA, on the bench.
