In Sunday’s World Cup round of 16 match against Senegal, England midfielder Jordan Henderson and captain Harry Kane each scored just before halftime to give their team a 2-0 lead.
After a slow start, England’s first dangerous attack resulted in a goal by Henderson in the 38th minute. Striker Kane was at the top of his game to add a second goal with the last kick of the half.
Speedy After England’s defense carelessly gave the ball away just past the half-hour mark, Senegal striker Boulaye Dia, who looked dangerous on the break, came closest for the African team when he brought out a sharp one-handed save from Jordan Pickford.
The two teams are competing to earn a matchup against the defending champions France, who defeated Poland 3-1 earlier on Sunday.
