Doha: England put on a dominant performance to beat African champions Senegal 3-0 at the Al Bayt Stadium to book a quarter-final showdown against defending champions France in the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
First-half goals from Jordan Henderson and Harry Kane set the Three Lions on their way before Bukayo Saka sealed victory in the second half for Gareth Southgate's side as the 1966 winners look to do better than their performance four years ago in Russia, where they reached the semi-final.
Senegal were clearly missing influential captain Sadio Mane who missed the tournament due to injury, while midfielders Idrissa Gana Gueye and Cheikhou Kouyate missed the game due to suspension and injury, respectively.
