England will have to overcome Senegal – and the dreaded ITV curse – if they’re to progress to the World Cup quarter-finals.

A return of seven points from three games was enough to seal top spot in Group B and set up a last-16 tie against the Africa Cup of Nations winners, who beat Ecuador to second place in Group A.

Marcus Rashford and Phil Foden inspired England to victory over Wales in the final group game, and the Manchester duo will need to be at their best once again as the Three Lions have only won two of their 15 World Cup games shown on ITV since 1998.


Senegal are without Sadio Mane in Qatar due to injury but still possess plenty of quality in their ranks, and head coach Aliou Cisse dreams of emulating his nation’s run to the quarter-finals 20 years ago.

England v Senegal prediction

Peter Crouch: Kalidou Koulibaly had to come up with the crucial goal versus Ecuador for them to get through. It was his first international goal.

With Sadio Mane out, you’d wonder whether they’ve enough firepower to really test England. Will they score? I’m hoping not even if it is a very cagey game. And I think England will come out on top in the end because they’ve more attacking weapons.
