England vs Senegal: World Cup 2022 prediction, kick off time, TV, live stream, team news, h2h results, odds today
England and Senegal tonight meet for the first ever time as they face off for a place in the World Cup quarter-finals.
The Three Lions toiled at times in Group B, particularly in a dull goalles draw with the USA, but never looked back once scoring early in the second half against Wales. Senegal had to beat Ecuador and did, even after their South American opponents fought back to level matters.
Now it’s time to look forward as they battle for the right to, likely, play world champions France in the quarter-finals.

England vs Senegal prediction
England will know that they cannot start slowly against Senegal, much like they did against both USA and Wales.
Senegal are by no means pushovers and can take the game to the Three Lions, who must set the tempo and control proceedings. If they can then it should be relatively straightforward - or as straightforward as it can be for England at a tournament.
England to win 2-0.
Head to head (h2h) history and results
England and Senegal have never faced each other in a competitive or friendly fixture.
United put one foot in the Carabao Cup final with a 3-0 win at Nottingham Forest on Wednesday and this competition represents another realistic target for silverware. Reading, managed by ex-United midfielder Paul Ince, are just five points outside the play-off places in the Championship but come into this match off the back of a heavy 4-0 defeat against Stoke last time out. Manchester United vs Reading is scheduled for an 8pm GMT kick-off tonight on Saturday January 28, 2023.
"I'd also like to give special mention to Kate McGovern who heads up the team in charge of Altior at Donnington Grove, and while he is still in intensive care, they are doing the most wonderful job and we cannot thank them enough." Henderson is a little more upbeat on the 13-year-old's health, he acknowledges Altior still has "a very long way to go".
