Super Eagles of Nigeria to Face England, Costa Rica in World Cup warm-up matches

Share:

The FA announced on Wednesday that England will host Nigeria and Costa Rica in a pair of friendlies in early June ahead of the start of the 2018 World Cup in Russia. England will face Nigeria on June 2nd at Wembley Stadium before taking on Costa Rica in Leeds on June 9.

 

The 2 matches serve a purpose of preparing England for two of its group stage opponents – Tunisia and Panama, which are in the same confederations as Nigeria and Costa Rica, respectively.

Of course, England memorably were held to a scoreless draw by Costa Rica in the final group stage game at the 2014 World Cup, ensuring England’s earlier-than-anticipated exit while allowing Costa Rica to advance as group winners.
