The win marked the Red Devils' best finish at the World Cup finals since their fourth place position in Mexico 1986.
An early goal from Thomas Meunier and a late effort from Eden Hazard in 82nd minute was enough to dash the Three Lions' hopes of winning a medal in Russia.
And Nigerians have taken to social media to react to the encounter at the Saint Petersburg Stadium.
