Plenty of others agreed before, during and after Saturday's 2-1 win against Nigeria, with many taking to social media to express their opinion. The Eagles were cleanly disrobed of all illusions in a fire-and-brimstone first 45 minutes, but at the end of the final whistle, they left the Wembley turf as men who have lost their cataracts and certain assumptions and know exactly what to do when they take to the pitch at the World Cup in Russian Federation in two weeks.

Overall the match was a real positive for England, but the second-half display shows Southgate still has work to do if his team are to make an impact in Russian Federation.

But Sterling couldn't stay out of trouble and was booked for an embarrassingly clear dive in a failed attempt to win a second-half penalty.

The FC Crotone striker said although the game would be a tough one, he believes Nigeria has what it takes to put up a good showing against the former world champions.
