The Three Lions claimed a 3-0 victory over Senegal to progress to the last eight, while the reigning champions beat Poland 3-1 to keep their hopes of back-to-back title alive.

England looked most likely to concede in the early stages against Senegal, who did not allow the Three Lions a second to breathe with their effective pressing, but the tide soon turned when Jude Bellingham took the game by the scruff of the neck.

Bellingham set up Jordan Henderson for the opening goal in the 38th minute before playing a huge part in Harry Kane’s 52nd goal just before the break, and Garenth Southgate’s decision to bring Bukayo Saka back into the side was vindicated, as the Arsenal man made it three for England after 57 minutes.

However, quarter-final exits have been commonplace for England, who have been eliminated at this stage in the 1954, 1970, 1986, 2002 and 2006 tournaments, and six of their last eight World Cup eliminations have come against fellow European nations.

A three-game run without conceding a goal at the World Cup stands England in good stead, and Southgate could now become the first Three Lions head coach in history to lead the team o more than one semi-final, but the most daunting of daunting foes is standing in their way.

Olivier Giroud’s 52nd goal was enough to see the AC Milan attacker storm to the top of the France charts, as Les Bleus displayed a clinical edge that Robert Lewandowski’s Poland had no answer to.

Giroud still has some way to go to become France’s outright leading goalscorer, with Eugenie Le Sommer having 85 to her name, but the veteran’s strength and link-up play complements the explosiveness of Mbappe perfectly, and England’s rearguard will have their work cut out for them here.

Les Bleus have now reached the quarter-finals of the World Cup in five of the last seven editions, including each of the last three, and France have prevailed in eight of the last 10 knockout ties against fellow UEFA nations, but they are yet to silence all the critics.

 

England vs. France Head to head

France Team News

Mbappe missed training on Tuesday due to discomfort in his ankle, but he was back on the practice pitches on Wednesday and should start on Saturday.

Jules Kounde and Aurelien Tchouameni will both miss any potential semi-final if they are booked here, but Deschamps is unlikely to factor in any on-field disciplinary infringements
