Manchester United's Jesse Lingard will start for England in Saturday's friendly against Nigeria at Wembley Stadium and manager Gareth Southgate believes there is no reason why he can't play alongside Dele Alli.While some observers believe the 25-year-old is competing for the same spot in the England side as Tottenham's Alli, Southgate says that isn't the case.Southgate gave no clues as to who would start in goal for England with Jack Butland, Jordan Pickford and Nick Pope the three goalkeepers in the World Cup squad.Southgate added that Manchester United central defender Phil Jones would miss the Nigeria match after he was allowed to leave the training camp as his partner is due to give birth.
