Nigeria vs England: Super Eagles lose 2-1 at Wembley

Gary Cahill and Harry Kane scored for England, as they defeated Nigeria 2-1 in an international friendly played at Wembley on Saturday.

Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr, was able to name a very strong line-up for the match, with captain John Mikel Obi back after a long hiatus.

However it was Mikel Obi’s former team-mate at Chelsea that opened scoring.

Cahill rose highest to head Ashley Young’s corner past Francis Uzoho. Kane doubled their lead just before the break, drilling in a low effort.

Nigeria upped their ante after the break, with Iwobi pulling one back after Odion Ighalo’s effort came off the post.
