The General secretary of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Mohammed Sanusi has confirmed the Super Eagles will tackle England in a pre-World Cup warm-up game in June, AOIFootball.com reports.
The venue and other details are expected to be finalized shortly, according to him.
The Eagles are drawn in Group D along with Argentina, Croatia and Iceland, while The 3 Lions are in Group G with Belgium, Panama and Tunisia.
Both countries have clashed once at this level, in 1995, when England won 1-nil at Wembley.
Sanusi also confirmed the Eagles will play at least one friendly before Russia 2018 in the country’s capital, Abuja.
Efforts to reach out to English FA for confirmation has proved abortive so far.
