After flopping for England at Euro 2016, Sterling has a point to prove and his fine form in City's Premier League title-winning campaign was on display in his eye-catching first-half performance.
"Second half they scored and it puts the pressure on but we got back into it an kept the ball and came back well".
Meanwhile, Lagos-born Iwobi and London-born Aina chose Nigeria for senior worldwide football but they played alongside Alli for England's youth teams and it's this familiarity they're looking to tap into to put the Tottenham Hotspur star off his game at Wembley. In the period leading up to their goal they changed their system and it took us a little while to figure out how to deal with that. It was a decent exercise for us to adjust to that.
England pipped the Super Eagles 2-1 in Saturday's friendly at Wembley Stadium. "I thought we used the ball well and were a threat going forward", said Southgate.
"The second half was much better because we played the same pattern with them and everybody was with his man".Читайте также: Killed, Over 2000 Evacuated As Guatemalan Volcano Erupts, City Airport Shut
"I think the pace in the team, you can feel it, and that is why we had some problems in the first half".
- The Three Lions have conceded in successive internationals at Wembley for the first time since November 2013 (v Chile and Germany).
Young and Sterling combined well but Bryne Idowu was well placed to clear the centre from the left-hand side, before a better passage of play from Nigeria with Odion Ighalo unlucky with an effort that was deflected to safety by Stones.
Southgate still has one more friendly, against Costa Rica at Elland Road on Thursday, to prepare his team for the World Cup, but it appears Pickford will be his No. 1.
Their first World Cup group game is against Tunisia in Volgograd.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
