England defeated Senegal 3-0 in round of 16 on Sunday, and will now face reigning champions France in the quarter finals at 2022 Qatar World Cup round of 16 on Sunday. France defeated Poland 3-1 earlier in the day Sunday.
England captain Harry Kane scored his first goal of this year’s World Cup; said Kane: “The ball just sat up nicely and the connection was perfect. I had one just before that I should have done better with so it was nice to see that one go in.” Jordan Henderson and Bukayo Saka also scored at Al Bayt Stadium while Jude Bellingham played a key role in the opening two goals and Phil Foden had two assists.
England, which reached the semifinals at the last World Cup in Russia, will face defending champion France at Al Bayt Stadium on Saturday. Said Kane: “We enjoyed this one, but of course our focus turns straight to that. It’s going to be a really tough game. They’re reigning champions but it’ll be a good battle.”
