As the tournament inches ever closer, the buzz around 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia is growing by the day and preparations for the event are in full swing now with all the participating nations playing International Friendlies 2018 against each other to fine tune their practice. Nigeria, touted as the big African hope at the marquee event, will take on Czech Republic at the Rudolf-Tonn-Stadion in Austria on Thursday (June 6). Since qualifying for the first time in 1994, the Super Eagles have missed only one tournament (failing to qualify for Germany in 2006), but are yet to make it as far as the final eight stage. They have been handed a tough group in Russia too with Lionel Messi’s Argentina alongside newbies Iceland and dark horses Croatia. As such, they have been looking to use these International Friendlies 2018 to hit peak form ahead of their World Cup opener against Croatia on June 17. Czech Republic, on the other hand, failed to qualify for the marquee event and this disappointment has led to a more youthful squad selection by manager Karel Jarolim for these summer friendly fixtures.

CZR vs NGA Playing 11
These International Friendlies 2018 are a medium for every team to find their best possible playing XI ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

At least for Nigeria, the CZR vs NGA Playing 11 will therefore consist of players from who are in peak form and will be expected to start their tournament opener against Croatia in Russia on June 17. Czech Republic have been trying out new players in these friendlies and trend is expected to continue when the NGA vs CZR Playing 11 comes out.

Young AS Roma striker Patrick Schick will certainly feature in CZR Playing 11. Coming to the NGA Playing 11, Kelechi Iheanacho started on the bench in Nigeria’s defeat to England having struggled for first-team football at Leicester City this season.

The 21 year old has a fine record for his country too with eight goals to his name in just 17 appearances. Victor Moses and John Obi Mikel will also be present in the NGA Playing 11 on Thursday.
