Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Injured

England will sorely miss the services of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the right flank in the England vs Nigeria game. The speedy 24-year old sustained a severe knee-injury during Liverpool's Champions League semi-final clash against Roma. The 31-year old Joe Hart, the current West Ham goalkeeper with 75 international caps for England has been overlooked. The 19-year Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold considered to be one of the most exciting prospects around has been included in the squad and is the only uncapped player.

The idea of a match against an African side was mooted by the Football Association as a sort of warm-up for England's World Cup opener against Tunisia on June 18 at Volgograd.

Nigeria's Premier League Players

Nigeria has in its ranks quite a few players who feature in the Premier League, viz. Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi, Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho from Leicester City, Chelsea star Victor Moses and a former Blues member John Obi Mikel who currently plays for Chinese side Tianjin Teda and Francis Uzoho, the goalkeeper of Spanish club Deportivo La Coruna.

For the Super Eagles, the friendly against a strong side like England will be good match practice as they are in a difficult World Cup group packed with teams like Argentina, Iceland and Croatia.
