ROAD TO RUSSIA: Is England Friendly Ideal For Super Eagles?

The Nigeria Football Federation and England’s Football Association on Wednesday confirmed that there will be a friendly between the Super Eagles and the Three Lions in London on 2 June.

Both teams will be looking to use the Wembley match as preparation towards the Russia 2018 World Cup which starts few days after the game.

While everybody agrees that this is a high-profile friendly for the Super Eagles given the calibre of opponent and the venue, eye brows have been raised in some quarters regarding the usefulness of the match.

Those against the friendly argue that the Super Eagles need to play countries with styles similar to Russia 2018 group phase opponents Argentina, Croatia and Iceland to give the Nigerian side a sense of what they will come up against at the World Cup.

England do not play like any of these teams, but those in support of the friendly believe the Super Eagles will benefit from playing against a grade A side with top players who will give the Nigerians a tough physical battle just days before the World Cup.

Which side are you on? Is the England friendly ideal for the Super Eagles or not? Why do you hold this view?
