England are set to face Senegal in the World Cup Round of 16 this evening, with the match kicking off at 19:00 on ITV.
However, the big subject surrounding this fixture is England’s poor World Cup record when their games are broadcast on the channel compared to their success when on the BBC.
A stat from The Athletic showed that England have only won 19% of their World Cup matches when on ITV in the past 25 years, compared to a win percentage of 71% when on the BBC.
WHAT A HIT!! 🤯

This is England’s second match of the tournament to be broadcast on ITV, the first one being a drab 0-0 draw with the USA during the group stages just over a week ago.
Can England improve on this record this evening to propel themselves to the quarter-finals of the World Cup for the 10th time in their history? ITV, the pressure is on.
