Who could England play in the World Cup quarter finals if they beat Senegal?

Spoiler alert... it's probably going to be one of the world's best teams!


England are set to play Senegal for the first time ever as the two teams battle for a place in the World Cup quarter finals.

The Three Lions are the favourites with Paddy Power to roar past the Lions of Teranga, but it won’t be easy as Aliou Cisse’s side are bidding to emulate the nation’s famous run to the last eight at the 2002 World Cup.


England’s path to the World Cup final has been set by virtue of winning Group B with seven points from three matches against Iran, USA and Wales.

It means their knockout adventure begins with a last-16 match against Group A runners-up Senegal – and the winners will go on to play either France or Poland in the quarter finals on Saturday, December 10 at 19:00 GMT.

The last-eight fixture is scheduled to take place at the Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor – the scene of England’s painfully boring stalemate with the USA earlier in the tournament.

Crucially, England and Senegal will head into their last-16 clash knowing whether it is France or Poland lying in wait as those two teams kick off earlier in the afternoon at 15:00 GMT.

France topped Group D, despite losing their final match to Tunisia in a controversial fashion as a last-minute leveller was incorrectly ruled out by VAR.

Poland sneaked through to the next stage of the competition by the skin of their teeth as a 2-0 defeat to Argentina was enough to finish second in Group C.
