Czech Republic live online: preview

Nigeria lost their most recent warm-up game against England and drew against DR Congo before that. They are preparing for the World Cup and despite the fact that their jersey is turning heads, their play on the field could be doing better.

Czech Republic, who are threading water in wait for the European qualifiers that start after the World Cup, were embarrassed 4-0 by Australia. Nigeria will be hoping their European opponents have takent their eye off the ball with the summer in view in hope of landing a win before they head to Russia.

They play Crotia first in a difficult group before playing Iceland and Argentina. Alex Iwobi scored against England and is vital to any hopes his nation have. They haven't won in four games and haven't kept a clean sheet in that time either.
