So, despite some criticism, England have made it to the knockout ‘last 16’ stage of the 2022 World Cup after topping their group B with 7 points and scoring 9 goals from their three matches.

The prize for England is a match against Senegal on Sunday and it will be the first time the sides have met ever!

With England ranked 5th in the World and Senegal 18th, there is 13 places between the sides and this is reflected in the match betting with England at 1.53, the draw 3.75 and Senegal at 7.50.

With extra-time and pens in play now we are into the knockout stages, then England are also 1.22 to qualify, with Senegal 4.33.

Coming into the World Cup, England were on a run of 6 games without a win, but they’ve improved those figures a bit with three games unbeaten but have drawn 50% of their last 8 matches now and also failed to score in 5 of their last 9.

With 4 of the Three Lions’ last games going OVER 2.5 GOALS, then this is certainly an option for punters at 2.30 and with 3 of Senegal’s last 4 games also seeing 3+ goals, then there does look to be some value here.

However, the slightly contrasting stat regarding England here, is that 8 of their last 10 games have seen both teams NOT score. They’ve not conceded in their last two fixtures, but do face a Senegal side here that have found the back of the net in 8 of their last 9 matches. You can back Over 2.5 Goals at 2.30 and Under 2.50 at 1.61.

England’s Harry Kane, who won the Golden Boot at the World Cup last time, is yet to get off the mark at this year’s tournament but will still be popular at 4.00 (1st) or 2.25 (anytime). While Marcus Rashford, who netted twice in their last game, and is on 3 goals for the tournament is also sure to figure and can be backed at 6.50 (1st) or 3.40 (anytime).

For Senegal, there is no Sadio Mane, who is injured, so their main goal threat might come from Ismaila Sarr, who has 11 goals from 50 caps. He’s on offer at 15.00 (1st) or 7.50 (anytime).

Overall, it’s a game England will be expected to win, but you feel that this will be their biggest test at the event so far.

With Senegal having lost just 1 of their last 5 games and scoring 2+ in 3 of their last 4, then both teams to score @ 2.37 catches the eyes.
