The general secretary of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Mohammed Sanusi has confirmed the Super Eagles will tackle England in a World Cup warm-up in June.

Rohr, 64, last week signed the contract that will see him in charge of the Super Eagles until the 2020 Africa Cup of Nations, and NFF president Amaju Pinnick has now disclosed that it was an improved offer for the German-born coach.

"They are going about the documentation now".

"Mikel Obi has been super", added Pinnick.

"He has radiated being that father figure for the team and has made the players understand that if "I lead well, you guys will follow well"".

The FA have yet to comment on the claims and it was thought England would play just two warm up games against Netherlands and Italy in March ahead of their World Cup opener against Tunisia but not according to Sanusi.

"The team spirit is what has been counting for us on the field and off the field. Gernot has been exceptional as a coach." .

Pinnick also took out time to commend Eagles' captain, John Mikel Obi for his leadership role and efforts within the team.

"According to what I have observed with the Nigerian team, their defense is the weaker part of the team, but they are very, very risky in attack".
