England defeated Senegal to move into the last-eight at the FIFA WC


A goal apiece from Jordan Henderson, Harry Kane and Bukayo Saka helped England to an impressive 3-0 win over African champions Senegal and move into the quarterfinals of the FIFA World Cup.

On Sunday at the Al Bayt Stadium, Gareth Southgate's side went into the half time break leading 2-0, opening the scoring in the 38th minute and adding a second in injury stoppage time of the opening session.

England netted a third one 13 minutes into the second half to take the game away from Aliou Cisse's side and set up a quarter-final clash with France, which earlier on Sunday defeated Poland 3-1.

England and France have met twice before at the World Cup, both in group games which England won 2-0 en route to the 1966 title and 3-1 in 1982. France will be looking for a positive result when the two meet on Sunday December 10 at Al Bayt Stadium.
