England vs Senegal Tonight and Lineups Predictions

England and Senegal will fight for a ticket to the quarter-finals of the 2022 World Cup . The Three Lionsare favorites to win that game.

England will face Senegal in the round of 16 match. The match will be held at Al Bayt Stadium, Monday (5/12) at 02.00 WIB.

This will be the first meeting between the two teams in history. England are armed with an unbeaten run in the group phase after crushing Iran 6-2, drawing with the United States 0-0 and beating Wales 3-0.

On the other side of the camp, Senegal earned two wins and one defeat. The Lions of Light started the tournament with defeats to the Netherlands 0-2, but successive wins over hosts Qatar 3-1 and Ecuador 2-1.

England are still hunting for their first international title since winning the 1966 World Cup. Gareth Southgate's men are getting closer to their ambitions after becoming finalists at Euro 2020.

Nevertheless, Senegal has the potential to create surprises, even without Sadio Mane. The African champions have some of the top players in the Premier League in Edouard Mendy, Kalidou Koulibaly and Ismaila Sarr. Even though Idrissa Gueye will be absent due to accumulation of yellow cards.

"We know we will be favorites in terms of ranking (England fifth, Senegal eighteenth-ed), but Senegal will be a very dangerous team," said England manager Gareth Southgate.

"We know many of their players have played in the Premier League and all over Europe."

Against Senegal, England will be led by Harry Kane. Marcus Rashford and Bukayo Saka have the potential to threaten the Senegalese defense after each scoring three goals and two goals in the group phase.

Considering the factors above, Detiksport predicts that England will beat Senegal with at least one goal difference. How about you?
