England Beat Senegal 3-0 To Advance To The Quarterfinals And Meet France
England advanced to the quarterfinals of the World Cup with a 3-0 win over Senegal on Sunday. The victory was thanks in large part to a dominant performance by England’s midfield, which controlled the pace of the game and allowed the team’s forwards to find space and score goals. The win sets up a meeting with France in the quarterfinals, a team that England has not beaten in a competitive match since 1997.
England’s Victory Over Senegal
In a close match that could have gone either way, England defeated Senegal 1-0 to advance to the quarterfinals of the World Cup. This sets up a matchup with France, who they will meet on Saturday.
England got off to a slow start, with Senegal dominating possession and creating several good chances. But as the first half wore on, England began to take control and create chances of their own. The breakthrough came in the 34th minute, when Harry Kane scored on a header from a corner kick.
Despite some late pressure from Senegal, England held on for the win. They will now face France in the quarterfinals, with a berth in the semifinals at stake.
England’s Upcoming Match Against France
1. England’s upcoming match against France
England’s next match is against France in the quarterfinals. This will be a tough match, as France are a strong team. However, England have beaten them before, and will be looking to do so again. The key for England will be to keep their cool and play their own game. If they can do this, then they have a good chance of winning.
How England Has Fared Against France In The Past
In the history of competitive football, England has played France 106 times. England have won 45 times, lost 46 times and drawn 15 times.
In the early years of their rivalry, it was France who had the upper hand, winning 14 of the first 20 meetings between the two teams. However, England slowly began to turn things around and by the time the two nations met at Euro 96, they were evenly matched.
That tournament saw one of the most famous moments in the history of the England-France rivalry, when David Beckham was sent off for kicking out at Diego Simeone. England went on to lose that match on penalties, but they exacted revenge four years later when they beat France in the World Cup semi-final.
More recently, it was France who came out on top in a dramatic friendly match in Paris in 2015, with Antoine Griezmann scoring twice in a 2-0 victory. However, England got their own back just a few months later by beating France 2-1 at Wembley in a Euro 2016 qualifier.
What England Needs To Do To Win Against France
In order to beat France, England will need to capitalize on their strengths and exploit the weaknesses of the French team. England’s strengths include their pace and power in attack, as well as their solid defense. The English team will need to use their speed and strength to create chances for themselves, and then take advantage of those opportunities when they arise. Additionally, England will need to be disciplined in defense and not allow the French team to create many chances for themselves. If England can stay organized at the back and prevent the French from scoring, they will give themselves a good chance to win the match.
England’s Chances Of Winning The World Cup
England’s chances of winning the World Cup are looking good after their victory against Senegal. They will now meet France in the quarterfinals, and they have a good chance of progressing to the semifinals. England have a young and talented squad, and they are playing well as a team. They will be confident going into their match against France, and they will have the support of the home crowd.
England are through to the quarterfinals of the World Cup after a hard-fought 3-0 victory over Senegal. This win puts them up against France, who they will have to beat if they want to continue their journey in the tournament. England showed great character and resilience in this match, and we hope that they can carry this momentum forward into their next game.
