England vs Senegal: Match Preview:

The European Championship runners-up finished top of their group, sandwiching a 0-0 draw against the United States with a pair of victories against Iran and Wales.

Senegal recovered from the setback of losing their star forward Sadio Mane ahead of the tournament and their opening match of the competition against the Netherlands to defeat Qatar and Ecuador.

Team News:

England:

Aside from Arsenal centre-back Ben White, who left the squad due to “personal reasons” earlier this week, Gareth Southgate should have a full bevvy of options at his disposal this Sunday. After the impressive form of the forwards that were drafted in against Wales, Southgate has some tricky choices to make.

Senegal:

Aliou Cisse has already juggled the absence of Mane but was dealt another blow during his nation’s spirited victory against Ecuador. Everton’s Idrissa Gana Gueye picked up a second booking of the tournament, ruling him out of the first knockout round.

Nottingham Forest’s Cheikhou Kouyate is thought to be the only injury absentee after he was stretchered off against the Netherlands.
