Nigerian retired footballer, Mutiu Adepoju, said the upcoming international friendly match between Nigeria’s Super Eagles and the Three Lions of England would be a good rehearsal before the World Cup.
The former Super Eagles midfielder who featured for the Super Eagles at the USA `94 and the France `98 World Cup, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the match would likely decide final team selection.
He said: “Well it’s a Grade A match, and it will definitely give the team an insight into what to expect at the World Cup proper.
“It’s a very good test match, probably this will be the last match before the World Cup.
“And I think it’s a good one that will put the team in proper perspective for the main event.’’
The Three Lions will lock horns with the Super Eagles on June 2, at the iconic Wembley Stadium.
