Southgate has yet to reveal whether Pickford or Jack Butland will be his first-choice goalkeeper in Russian Federation but the scales tipped heavily in the Everton man's favour as he was given 90 minutes in the 2-1 win at Wembley.
"We know we have to and we have to keep playing this way".
While Saturday represents a further chance for Gareth Southgate to experiment with his team ahead of one final friendly against Costa Rica before their World Cup opener against Tunisia on June 18, Nigeria will play their strongest XI.

The match is one of the friendly encounters ined up for the Eagles ahead of the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation later this month.

"We need time to always play together as a team, train together and now we have to go to Austria to focus in training to correct our mistakes". "His decision making was good although he was rarely tested".

Unfortunately the moment that will likely generate the most headlines from this match will be Raheem Sterling's second half simulation.
England have a final World Cup friendly clash with Costa Rica on Thursday June 7, before making their way to 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. "This game shows we still have a lot of work to do to be ready for the World Cup", Rohr said after the game.
