It was a clash of two prides of lions! But the ‘Three Lions’ of England were ruthless, devouring the Teranga Lions of Senegal to extend England’s unbeaten runs by African teams in the World Cup and booking a place in an anticipated explosive clash with France in the quarter finals.

For England, what was anticipated to be an explosive battle turned a stroll in the park as they surged to a comfortable 3-0 victory.

Goals by Jordan Henderson, Harry Kane and Nigerian-born Bukayo Saka swept them into a mouth-watering World Cup quarter-final clash with France.

England took a long time to impose themselves on the African champions, a team they had never faced before, and survived a couple of scares before two goals late in the first half changed the feel of the night and it was no contest after the break.
