Russia 2018: Nigeria, England Confirm June 2 Wembley Friendly

The Nigeria Football Federation and the England FA have confirmed that the Super Eagles will play the Three Lions in a friendly at the Wembley Stadium in London on June 2.

The match will be only the third between both countries at senior level. It will serve as the Super Eagles’ final preparatory game for the FIFA World Cup finals in Russia, with their first match against Croatia in Kaliningrad coming exactly two weeks after.

The NFF 1st Vice President and Chairman of the Federation’s Organising Committee, Seyi Akinwunmi, told thenff.com on Tuesday: “The match is now confirmed. We had been doing a lot of work in the background, even going back to last year.

“Now, we are happy to say that it is all sealed. Certainly, it is going to be a big match, between two countries of remarkable historical affinity and similarities.

“We have other matches and programmes for the team, and we will soon roll out the entire plan for matches
