The Three Lions defeated The Lions of Teranga 3-0 to secure their spot in the quarterfinals of the FIFA World Cup against France.

England and Senegal face off for the first time in the World Cup with England being in the round of 16 of 6 of the last 7 editions, a familiar territory for the Three Lions. However, the Teranaga Lions are only hoping to qualify for their second quarterfinal spot in their history.

Senegal had the first clear cut chance of the game with Boulaye Dia shot being well saved by Jordan Pickford.

The two attacking midfielders of England combined to break the deadlock for England as Harry Kane dropped deep in a quick counter attack, setting up Jude Bellingham who in turn set up his midfield partner Jordan Henderson to score the first goal.

In the first half stoppage time as Senegal surged forward to get an equalizer, they left their defense vulnerable again and were punished by Harry Kane who scored his first goal of the tournament so far.

Bellingham escaped the pressure of two Senegal defenders and set Phil Foden away before his first time pass played in Harry Kane to dispatch into the bottom corner.

As Senegal chased the game before the hour mark, they got themselves susceptible to a quick counter again and were once again punished as Foden found Saka in the box to put the result beyond doubt.

Senegal couldn’t really create any chance to score any goal as they were shambolic and easily gave away passes. The Lions of Teranga were tamed and caged by the Three Lions.
