England captain Harry Kane finally scored the first goal of the season
In the round of 16 knockout round of the World Cup in Qatar, England has no fear against menacing Senegal. In the past, England has never ended up losing against African teams in the previous World Cups. In addition, they performed well in this group stage. Compared with Senegal, which qualified for the promotion without any risk, England is more optimistic about advancing to the quarterfinals.
Looking back at the game at the Al Bayt Stadium, in the 38th minute of the first half, England relied on midfielder Jordan Henderson to grasp the assists of his teammates and kick the ball into the opponent’s goal, breaking the deadlock and allowing England to open the scoring. During stoppage time in the first half, England captain Harry Kane, who won the Golden Boot of the last World Cup, scored his first goal in this tournament and the seventh goal in the World Cup. In the 57th minute of the second half, Bukayo Saka added the icing on the cake, scoring the third point for England, and they eliminated Senegal 3-0 at the end.
The “Three Lions” England showed impressive firepower in this World Cup. Apart from not scoring against the United States, they scored an astonishing 12 points against Iran, Wales, and Senegal. In fact, England won the World Cup for the first time in 1966, and only 11 goals were scored in the entire event. In the next game, England will face the defending champion France and strive to qualify for the top 4.
