After the Three Lions topped Grup B by defeating Wales, a first-ever meeting between the nations sees Gareth Southgate’s side face the Lions of Teranga, who made it through to the knockout rounds through a crucial intervention from their captain.

Defying their doubters again, England’s second-half performance in Tuesday’s final group game saw them not only see off their Welsh neighbours, but also reach the last 16 of Qatar 2022 as Group B winners.

They scored twice within 98 seconds at Ahmad bin Ali Stadium, with Marcus Rashford breaking the deadlock through a 50th-minute free kick, before Phil Foden struck the second soon after. Ranshford later added the third, his nation’s 100th World Cup goal.

Now set to face Group A runners-up Senegal in Al Khor, England are yet to to lose in 20 matches against African opposition, so Southgate’s current crop surely start as favourites to progress on Sunday.

Senegal should not lack in that most precious of commodities either, as they arrived in Qatar as African champions and have since negotiated safe passage to the kncokout phase for just the second time.

Beating Ecuador in a winner-takes-all tie, they were indebted to captain Kalidou Koulibaly for his 70th-minute winner at Khalifa International Stadium on Tuesday.

Cisse, supported by assistant El Hadji Diouf, now aims to lead his nations into the quarter-finals, perharps setting up an emotional re-match with France, who they defeated in the finals’ opening game some 20 years ago.

While African teams have lost eight of nine World Cup knockout games against European opponents to date, if it comes to spot-kicks the Senegal could therefore hold a distinct edge over the English countersparts, who have so often seen shootouts result in painful failure.

England vs. Senegal Head to head

These two nations have not previously met in any competition and this will be their first meeting in the World Cup knockout round.

England Team News

Southgate will not only consider returning Kieran Trippier, Bukayo Saka and Raheem Sterling to the lineup on Sunday, but there remains an outside possibility of switching from a back four to a flexible three-man defence.

Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham should join Declan Rice and Henderson in a central-midfield trio.

Senegal Team News

Chekho Kouyate sustained an ankle injury in their first fixture and has since been ruled out of training, and Nampalys Mendy of Leicester City should therefore deputise.

Krepin Diatta and Famara Diedhiou are contenders to feature for the Lions of Teranga on Sunday, with Salernitana striker Boulaye Dia providing the central goal threat.
