Goal! England 3-0 Senegal

Saka gets in on the fun for England. They’ve been clinical to say the least… England vs France will be a rollercoaster of a match in the quarterfinal.

Things looking much better now for England than they were for the majority of the opening period. Will they continue like in the second half?

Goal! England 2-0 Senegal

Goal! England 1-0 Senegal

A breakaway goal – can’t really say they deserved it but pretty clinical. Jordan Henderson slots in from a Jude Bellingham cut back.

Kick Off!

We’re underway. France waiting in the quarter-finals for whoever comes out on top tonight.

Starting XI –

So Rashford, England’s top scorer in Qatar, does indeed miss out despite that brace against Wales in the last match. Saka and Foden start either side of Kane, while Henderson gets the nod in midfield over Mount and Walker starts at right-back.

Mendy comes into midfield for Senegal, pressure on him to deliver with Gueye missing out through suspension.
