The English started the game better, leading more attacks, but the Senegalese defense continued to do its job perfectly.
We were about a quarter of the way through when Senegal found themselves in an unexpectedly large position. After Diata’s pass, Dia could hit the goal in a dangerous situation, but Stones saved him just in time. Immediately after that, Ismail Sarr had an excellent opportunity to score, but the Watford player missed the goal. In the 32nd minute, Dia could have scored again, but a shot from an acute angle was brilliantly saved by Pickford with a left hand.
But despite the situation of the Africans, the English took the initiative! In the 38th minute, at the end of a fantastic dynamic attack, Bellingham passed the ball into the middle of the field Jordan Henderson He shot it in the goal.

In extra time of the first half, the second English goal arrived: another powerful strike at the end Harry Kane Bombed in the middle of the goal. It was Kane’s 11th World Cup and European Championship goal in total, overtaking Gary Lineker at the top of the relevant list for England.
Aliou Cisse made three substitutions in the second half, but that didn’t work out the miracle either. In the 57th minute Bukayo Saka Foden’s pass turned into another goal.
It was clear that Senegal are not in the same weight group as England and, unlike the first half, we didn’t see many flashes from Cisse’s players in the second half.
In the end, the score remained 3-0, so England will face France in the quarter-finals on December 10.

|Based on the compilation released on Sunday by the World Cup organizers in Qatar, more than two million people have applied for the Life Pass needed to enter the country for the duration of the tournament. Most of them were from Saudi Arabia, followed by India, the United States and then the United Kingdom. From which we can conclude that with the Welsh, the English payers were and still are on the site in the fourth largest number. The information was somewhat surprising, because there was no sign of the boisterous English crowd that moved together at previous World Cups and European Championships in the city. Perhaps there was a shortage of beer, perhaps Doha’s city structure, made up of the city’s tangle of highways, made it difficult for big fans to move around, but it’s also possible that protesters carrying slender purses stayed home. On the court of the baguettes, however, the English had the upper hand in numbers, the difference being that a handful of Senegalese bands numbering about fifty won the battle of temperament with their tribal songs and dances from the first minute to the last.
As for the football pros, I spoke with my colleague Ibrahima Mbenge, who was preparing for the match as a Senegalese Record employee – in the national hat – and in this capacity could approach the steps of the stadium. Provide real status report on the African team. He said that people back home after the successful completion of the group stage would certainly rate Qatar’s performance positively, but still felt it would not be bad to beat the English, namely under the guidance of the experienced European “guest players”. in rival football. And what was the Senegalese expert talking about? Here’s the full England squad for the Senegal side starting on Sunday: Edouard Mendy (Chelsea), Kalidou Koulibaly (Chelsea), Nambales Mendy (Leicester City), Elimane Ndiaye (Sheffield United) and Ismaila Sarr (Watford).
However, the European Championship silver medalists England dominated the match, first only on the field, and then in measurable fashion: by the end of the first half, Jordan Henderson and 2018 World Cup top scorer Harry Kane, who scored his first goal of the match. Qatar Championships, it already had 2 leads to -0. Then, thanks to Bukayo Saka’s beautiful goal, the fate of the match and progress was decided in less than an hour: thanks to the 3-0 victory, the England national team could prepare for the quarter-finals against France.
