Alex Iwobi pulled a goal back for the Super Eagles two minutes into the start of the second half and despite a number of chances for both sides, the Three Lions claimed the narrow win.

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. In the first half when we had chances, we can't lose our confidence because a team changed their formation'.

He wrote: "One good thing about this England side that they r so bad that no one is expecting anything from them this Worldcup for the first time since 1966!"

However, on 1 October of that year, he was included in Roy Hodgson's England squad for the final UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying matches against Estonia and Lithuania. And the German tactician noted that "a lot of work" still has to be done on his team.

Gary Cahill believes England colleague Raheem Sterling has conducted himself "fantastically" during a hard week for the Three Lions star.

The Chelsea defender has bags of experience and also possesses good leadership qualities.

Let's see how it goes because none of the teams would have settled down at the start of their first game.

Southgate has had a testing week as England manager but has dealt comfortably with everything thrown his way.

The final list of 23 players who will play at the FIFA Russia World Cup has been released.

Southgate exudes composure and seems to be building a cohesive young England team with an exciting future.

But the former Chelsea midfielder has said that the poor showing in the first half was because England played a five-man defence and the Eagles were unable to break them down.

The Everton man had a steady game on Saturday and could do little about Iwobi's strike.
