The Nigeria Football Federation on Wednesday confirmed that the Super Eagles would face England in a friendly affair at Wembley Stadium in London on June 2. 

England manager Gareth Southgate also confirmed the encounter as well as the June 7 date against Costa Rica at Leeds United’s Elland Road Stadium. 

The match will be only the third between both Nigeria and England, who are preparing for the Russia 2018 World Cup. 

Nigeria first met England in 1994 in an International friendly played in Wembley, with David Platt scoring the only goal of the game in the 41st minute as the Three Lions triumphed over the Super Eagles led by the late Shuaibu Amodu of blessed memory. 

Both teams met again eight years later in the 2002 World Cup, but this time the game ended in a barren draw with goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama pulling a World Class save to deny Paul Scholes a moment of Glory.
