England defeated Senegal 3-0 to advance to a quarterfinalmatchup with France at the FIFA World Cup 2022

Free-scoring with a 3-0 victory over Senegal on Sunday, which included captain Harry
Kane’s first World Cup goal, England extended their unbeaten streak against African nations
and advanced to a quarterfinal matchup with holders France.
With the final ball of the first half, Kane sent a fierce shot past Edouard Mendy, moving him
one goal behind Wayne Rooney’s record of 53 goals for England.
Following a cross from Phil Foden in the 57th minute, nimble winger Bukayo Saka scored
the third with a deft chip over Mendy. The 12 goals that England has scored so far in Qatar
match their best World Cup total from Russia 2018, when they advanced to the semifinals. In
winning the world championship in 1966, they scored 11.
