In the Round of 16, England and Senegal will face off. Both of these sides showed a desire to score throughout the group stage. The match between the Three Lions and the Lions of Teranga is thought to be among the most exciting ones to watch in the knockout stages.
In the group stage, England scored nine goals in three games, demonstrating tremendous scoring ability. They scored nine goals total, with six coming against Wales and three against Iran. The USA vs. England game concluded in a scoreless tie. After losing to the Netherlands 0-2, Senegal won its following matches against Qatar and Ecuador.
England: It won’t be simple for England to defeat the African champion. They just once achieved victory in 1966. It’s strange for a well-known team like England that they haven’t even made it to the finals since then. After losing to Croatia in the semifinals and Belgium in the match for third place, they came in fourth at FIFA 2018 in Russia. However, this time they are riding high on their scoring prowess. Even if a goalless draw against the USA was somewhat frustrating for the supporters, scoring six goals over Iran and three goals against Wales was not an easy feat.
Senegal: Senegal will be conscious of the fact that, should they defeat England, it would mark the first time they had won three games in a single world cup. They are competing in their third world cup, and they seem well this time. Since five of them have already scored in this event, they are not dependent on a single player. Particularly stunning was their 2-1 triumph over Ecuador. They’ll get ready to surprise a lot of people when they compete against the European team.

This will be a tight match between two prosperous nations, but England has a strong team that may change the way the game plays. The outcome is expected to be a 2-0 win for England.
