Nigerians Mocked Over 'Beautiful Jersey' Following 2-1 Loss To England

Harry Kane and Eric Dier of Tottenham Hotspur react as Vicente Iborra of Leicester City lies on the pitch during the Premier League match between Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur Nigerians Mocked Over 'Beautiful Jersey' Following 2-1 Loss To England

Federation Internationale de Football Association released the final squads of each of the World Cup's 32 teams on Monday, complete with shirt numbers, height and weight, and it listed Tottenham striker Kane at 98 kilograms (216 pounds).

The Everton player saw out 90 minutes in Saturday's 2-1 win over Nigeria and Martyn said clarity over Southgate's pecking order would help the performance of either Pickford or Jack Butland when England's World Cup campaign starts against Tunisia on June 18.

Kane captained England in three of their eight World Cup qualifiers and has been handed the role for Russian Federation where the 24-year-old will also be expected to help fire the side into the knockout stages.

Maybe the first Euros I played in when we beat Sweden in the group stages, got Italy [in the quarter-finals] and got knocked out on penalties but apart from that, we didn't get out of the group in the 2014 World Cup and got beat by Iceland in the last Euros.

That closed shop has opened its doors under Gareth Southgate and even now, with eight days to go until the start of the World Cup, Southgate's choice of keeper is not quite confirmed.

Southgate has yet to settle on his preferred starting team and fielded Jesse Lingard alongside fellow attacking midfielder Dele Alli on Saturday, providing England with pace and creativity that led to a string of first-half chances. "I am not going to sit here and make that an excuse for what happened in the Euros", he said. "You've got plenty of big grounds around the country with thousands of people wanting to watch". "In the tournaments I've been to, we haven't achieved anything really, to be honest. Training each day is hard but we're pushing each other and that's the way it should be".

"For some reason, not a lot of us or not a lot of us believe in it".

"That was really important to the way we want to play". "First-half good, second-half not so good", Eriksson used to deadpan.
