England – Senegal: The Three Lions defeat Senegal
ENGLAND – SENEGAL: THE THREE LIONS DEFEAT THE SENEGALESE LIONS
Les Bleus will face England in the quarterfinals of this World Cup. The men of Gareth Southgate have indeed won against Senegal (3-0). They will challenge the French team on Saturday, December 10, at 8 p.m.
A SLOW START-UP
Announced as the favourites of their round of 16, the English had a hard time starting their duel against Senegal. More than once they were in trouble and could have conceded the opening goal on several occasions. However, fortunately for them, Ismaïla Sarr’s attempt went over Jordan Pickford’s goal after only 3 minutes of play.
The Senegalese still tried to open the score. The English keeper had to stop a shot from Boulaye Dia in the 32nd minute. But the Three Lions had to react. A few minutes later, Jordan Henderson finally opened the score for England, taking a good cross from Jude Bellingham in the 38th minute.
The English then appear to be liberated. They then took the opportunity to add to the score through Harry Kane. The English striker took a deep ball and unleashed a powerful right-footed shot that left the keeper helpless. Kane scored his first goal of the tournament in first half stoppage time to make it 2-0.
THE FAVORITE CONFIRMS ITS STATUS…
We regretted a considerable lack of rhythm in the second half. Indeed, unlike the first half, we could see the English managing their lead against the Senegalese giving the impression of knowing the final outcome of this game.
The only action of this period took place in the 57th minute. On a good overflow on the left side, the ball is centered at the penalty point and is posted Saka. The young Gunners striker made it 3-0 for the English side with a flat-footed finish. He also scored his third personal goal in this competition.
After making it to the semifinals of the 2018 World Cup and the Euro final last summer, England continues to perform well. To hope to lift the trophy in this World Cup, they will therefore have to topple Kylian Mbappé’s French team, the reigning world champion in the quarterfinals.
