Sarina Wiegman’s side have scored eight goals and conceded twice.

Ayegba, who represented Nigeria between 2001 and 2010 however insisted that his country have a chance of beating England.

“Every team has a weak point and England currently have some injuries,”Ayegba told the BBC.

“When Nigeria beat Australia, the hosts actually played well but we over-powered them with our strength and power. That’s our weapon that we have to use. If we can do that, then the game is 50/50.”
