Manager Gareth Southgate kept faith in the 23-year-old and started him against Nigeria.

"We know we have to and we have to keep playing this way".

Nigeria continued their preparations for the 2018 FIFA World Cup with a 2-1 loss to England at Wembley Stadium in a friendly worldwide on Saturday evening.
