England breeze past Senegal in devastating display

Posted by

England has booked their place in the quarter-finals after dominating Senegal 3-0.

It looked like it could be ‘one of those days for England after they had failed to impress in the opening 38 minutes.

They were stale and played like the weight of the jersey was holding them down. Senegal pressed high and looked by far the better side.

They would have taken the lead if it wasn’t for a world-class save from Everton’s Jordan Pickford.

And counter they did, thanks to some slick play and a sensational Jude Bellingham run they managed to exploit the space down Senegal’s left. The Borussia Dortmund star pulled back the ball for an on-rushing Jordan Henderson.

Senegal retaliated again by pushing men forward and England once again launched a devastating counter. This time it was Harry Kane who got on the score sheet, finally opening his World Cup account.

Bukayo Saka then scored England’s third and final goal with a delicate chip over the out rushing goalkeeper.

The real test now lies ahead of England, they must try to overcome a French team who have looked devastating in the tournament so far.
