England will face African opposition in the knockout rounds of a World Cup for only the second time today when they take on Senegal at the Al Bayt Stadium in Qatar.

Not since 1990 and the famous meeting with Cameroon have the Three Lions taken on a team from Africa in such a winner-takes-all clash – and since then England have only won three knockout ties inside 90 minutes at any World Cup.

But Gareth Southgate’s side have ended several long waits for England fans in recent years and can take a step closer to ending the mother of all droughts with victory in this evening’s kick-off.

Fans perhaps have a tricky decision on how to watch tonight’s match, deciding between the Sunday night pub session and the calmer surroundings of the living room

Gareth Southgate’s side head into the match after an ultimately comfortable 3-0 over Wales on Tuesday, which provided an ideal tonic to a frustrating goalless draw with the USA on November 25.

It is the first-ever meeting between the two nations, with this Senegal’s first appearance at the knockout stages of a World Cup since the 2002 finals.

Aliou Cisse’s team finished Group A with six points from three games after following up a 2-0 defeat to the Netherlands with 3-1 and 2-1 victories over Qatar and Ecuador to book their place in the last 16.

Whoever emerges victorious will know their potential quarter-final opponents prior to kick-off, with France and Poland.


The last-16 match between England and Senegal kicks off at 19:00 GMT on Sunday, December 4.


The game between England and Senegal will be shown live on ITV1 in the UK with coverage beginning at 18:00 GMT.

Live stream: Fans can also catch the game live online via ITVX and ITV website.

We might be getting a little bit carried away, but it is too hard to resist not mapping out England’s potential route to the final after their last-16 opponents were confirmed.

Should the Three Lions get past Senegal on Sunday, Gareth Southgate’s side face the prospect of a potential match against reigning champions France in the quarter-finals, should they get the better of Poland.

Is it coming home? It’s far too early to tell at the moment.
