England beat Africa Champions Senegal 3-0 at the 2022 World Cup and advance to the quarterfinals.
The result sets up a thrilling clash with France, who beat Poland 3-1 earlier in the day, for Gareth Southgate’s side in the first ever knockout match at the World Cup for the two European heavyweights.
The victory extended England’s all-time unbeaten run against African teams to 21 games, including eight in World Cups. Morocco, who face Spain on Tuesday, are now the only African team left in the tournament.
The absence of the suspended Idrissa Gueye and injured Cheikhou Kouyate left Senegal’s midfield too underpowered to pose problems for England.
