England 2-1 Nigeria: Kane & Cahill Score, Iwobi With The Consolation (MATCH REPORT + VIDEO HIGHLIGHT)


Harry Kane continued his scoring streak as England captain but Gareth Southgate's side made heavy work of beating Nigeria in their final Wembley outing before the World Cup.



England took the lead inside seven minutes courtesy of Gary Cahill's headed effort and Kane doubled the advantage before the break, when modest goalkeeping allowed him to hit the net for the sixth time in five appearances with the armband.

But what might have turned into a walk in the park against a side ranked 47th in the world became a tense 2-1 victory as Arsenal's Alex Iwobi struck less than two minutes into the second half, robbing the hosts of their composure.

Southgate will take some heart from the fact England held out but with 16 days to go before their Group G opener against Tunisia.

ENGLAND 2-1 NIGERIA - CAHILL (7), KANE (40), IWOBI (47)
England XI: Pickford, Walker, Stones, Cahill, Trippier, Young, Dier, Alli, Lingard, Kane, Sterling.
