Redknapp warning

Posted on 11 June 2002  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Jamie Redknapp warns to beware of a 'wounded' side as England prepare to face Nigeria in their final Group F game on Wednesday.

England require a draw against the Nigerians and Jamie reckons confidence will be high going into the game after the famous win over Argentina.

Nigeria, highly fancied before the tournament, are out of contention after losing their opening two games against Argentina and Sweden. The pressure is off them and no team will want to return home having lost all three group games.

"I think you've got to be a bit careful because they'll be wounded," warned Jamie. "But I think our confidence will be high now."

Jamie says it is very hard to second guess England boss Eriksson when it comes to team changes for the Nigeria game, but suspects he will stick to his tried and trusted formula.

"I don't know what he'll do. Everyone thought he'd change the team against Argentina and he bought in one new face.

"It's very hard to pick what he's going to do. I think he's got it in his mind what he wants and that's it - no-one can change his mind. That's what makes a good manager."
