England beat Nigeria 2-1 on Saturday evening in a friendly clash at Wembley ahead of the World Cup this summer.

That thing Moses did to Harry Kane, if we don’t score a second goal before the end of the game, FIFA will count that for us #ENGNGA

Nigeria’s goalkeeper has obviously been attending the Karius school of excellence #ENGNGA
