How have Senegal fared so far?

Disaster struck for Senegal before the World Cup even started, with talismanic forward Sadio Mane ruled out of the tournament after picking up an injury while playing for Bayern Munich. But the Africa Cup of Nations champions managed to progress from the group stage regardless, winning two and losing one of their three games.

They were unlucky in their first match against the Netherlands, holding out for more than 80 minutes before two late goals clinched the win for the Dutch.

Senegal survived a scare in their second game against hosts Qatar. After taking a two-goal lead, the hosts threatened to cause a shock by pulling one back on 78 minutes. But Senegal replied six minutes later to put the game to bed.

The Lions of Teranga were resilient in their final group game against Ecuador. They took the lead through an Ismaila Sarr penalty, but were pegged back by a Moises Caicedo goal.But as they did against Qatar, Senegal replied quickly, with a clinical volley from Kalidou Koulibaly winning the match and securing their last-16 place.

How have England got on so far?

England's World Cup started in convincing fashion, with their 6-2 win over Iran gaining plenty of plaudits. A goalless draw followed against the USA, putting the brakes on the English excitement levels somewhat.

Another 45 minutes passed against Wales with England unable to find the net before two quick-fire goals from Marcus Rashford and Phil Foden after the break turned the game in the Three Lions' favour.

Wales needed victory to keep their own World Cup dreams alive but Rashford netted his second and England were able to see the game out to book their spot in the knockout stages.
