The winner of England vs Senegal is likely to face France in the World Cup quarter-finals

England secured their place in the 2022 World Cup round of 16 on Tuesday as they comfortably beat Wales 3-0 in their final group stage match. Their upcoming opponents had already been confirmed the day before, with Senegal claiming a narrow victory over Ecuador to take them to second in Group A.
