England are to host Nigeria at Wembley on Jun 2 and face Costa Rica at Elland Road five days later, before kicking off their World Cup Group G campaign against Tunisia on Jun 18.

Costa Rica topped England's group at Brazil 2014, being held to a 0-0 draw by Roy Hodgson's team in Belo Horizonte, before suffering a penalty shoot-out elimination against the Netherlands in the quarter-finals.

England will play at Wembley on Saturday June 2 against Nigeria, who will also be at the World Cup finals this summer.

England will take on Nigeria and Costa Rica in their World Cup warm-up football games in June before travelling to Russian Federation.

First Vice-president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Seyi Akinwunmi, confirmed on Wednesday details of the friendly game.

"We have other matches and programmes for the team, and we will soon roll out the entire plan for matches, camping sites and training camps, " he said in the statement.

The supporters show a loyalty and love for the game which one day will surely be rewarded by today's United being as successful as past Elland Road teams.

"This is good news for myself and the entire team. We will be able to test our readiness for the World Cup when we meet the Three Lions at Wembley", he added.
