England will take on World Cup holders France in the quarter-finals in Qatar after a comprehensive 3-0 victory over African champions Senegal.
England beat Senegal, cruise into quarters
England have set up a mouthwatering World Cup quarter-final against reigning champions France as Jordan Henderson, Harry Kane and Bukayo Saka struck against Senegal.
Playing in their first knockout match on the world stage since the agonising extra-time 2018 semi-final loss to Croatia, Gareth Southgate’s men showed their quality to progress in Qatar.
Kane became England’s highest ever scorer at major tournaments after Henderson opened the scoring, with Saka superbly wrapping up a comfortable 3-0 win against Senegal in Sunday’s last-16 contest at Al Bayt Stadium.
The reward is a return to Al Khor for a crunch clash against France next Saturday (Sunday 6am AEDT) as last year’s European Championship runners-up take on the World Cup holders.
