FIFA World Cup 2022: England beat African champions in the pre-quarters Three Lions won by three goals without opposition. Jordan Henderson (38), Harry Kane (45) and Bukayo Saka (57) scored for England. With this, the stage is set for a great contest between France and England in the quarter.
Senegal managed to hold on to England’s lead until the 38th minute of the match but Henderson put England ahead with an accurate finish from Bellingham’s assist. After the goal fell, it was seen that England was in control of the field. England took the lead in extra time in the first half.
England captain Harry Kane, who won the Golden Boot at the last World Cup, could not find a place on the score sheet this time. But that shortcoming was resolved in the game against Senegal. Kane scored from Phil Foden’s pass on the counter attack.
A third goal in the 57th minute gave Senegal no chance of a comeback. Phil Foden also paved the way this time. Darts down the left wing and cuts a measured gap into the box. Bukayo Saka only had the task of hitting the ball into the net. This is England’s 12th goal in the World Cup.
