Nigeria midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo has expressed confidence that the Super Eagles can overcome the Three Lions of England in today’s (Saturday) friendly at Wembley Stadium.
The Super Eagles will face England from 5.15pm this evening as part of their preparations towards this summer’s FIFA World Cup in Russia.
This is the third time both countries will be meeting with England pipping the Super Eagles 1-0 in 1994 in a friendly.
In 2002, both countries played a 0-0 draw in a group game at the 2002 FIFA World Cup in Korea/Japan.
Etebo who should be in action for the Eagles in Saturday’s friendly, wrote on his Twitter handle: “Tonight we will soar over Wembley.”
After the friendly against England, the Eagles will fly to Austria where they will take on Czech Republic.
England will continue their preparation for the World Cup with another friendly against Costa Rica on Thursday.
