Senegal started the game well and had the better of the first half an hour, creating a couple of good opportunities and limiting England to very little in attack.

In the 31st minute Senegal had a golden opportunity to go 1-0 up, Boulaye Dia received the ball inside the box and smashed an effort on target but Jordan Pickford pulled off a superb save from close range to deny him.

It was an excellent save and from that moment on England looked like they had finally woken up.

Just seven minutes after that Pickford save, England were ahead. Gareth Southgate’s side made Senegal pay with a superb sweeping move, Harry Kane slipped in Jude Bellingham who had made a brilliant forward run, the Borussia Dortmund man then hooked it across for Jordan Henderson who was on hand to finish emphatically from close range.

Just five minutes later England had a second and the Three Lions were in total control. Bellingham stormed through midfield with the ball before finding Phil Foden on the left, Foden then played in Kane with his first touch and he thumped home to grab his first goal of the 2022 World Cup.

The Three Lions then made it 3-0 on the 57th minute, Foden played a super ball into Bukayo Saka who deftly lifted the ball over Edouard Mendy for his third goal of the tournament.
Overall it was a good test for England, they dealt with early pressure from Senegal before going through the gears and putting the game out of sight.
