England vs Senegal to be shown on ITV as CURSE looms over fixture

Posted by

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.

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.
