Saka scores as England sends Senegal Home

England’s passage to the quarter-finals of the World Cup was booked on Sunday night after triumphing over Senegal!

Jordan Henderson opened the scoring before Harry Kane got his first at the tournament with a fine finish.

The Three Lions began the second half as they finished the first, scoring their third goal through Saka within 12 minutes of the restart.

From then on, it was a case of keeping Senegal at arm’s length, and England certainly did that, nearly adding to their lead on several occasions and restricting their opponents to the occasional pop-shot as they closed out a 3-0 victory, to set up a mouth-watering clash with France in the last eight.

England have scored 12 goals in four matches at this year’s World Cup, the Three Lions’ joint-most at a single major tournament (World Cup and Euros), level with their 12 goals at the 2018 World Cup.
