were right on the money as they did not lose focus at all and played almost a perfect game to beat Senegal 3-0 in the Round of 16 of the Fifa
World Cup 2022.
Courtesy of this win, the Three Lions have now made it to their successive Quarterfinal where they will meet defending champions France who qualified earlier in the day in a similar clinical fashion, beating Poland 3-1.
For England, Jordan Henderson started the scoring in the first half as he converted a beautiful cross from Jude Bellingham and gave the English a 1-0 in the 36th minute. In the added time of the first half itself, England
skipper Harry Kane scored his first goal and made the lead 2-0. With Bukayo Saka’s goal in the 57th minute, it became almost impossible for Senegal to come back as English defenders kept their shape to keep a clean sheet.
