That's it for the night. We will be there tomorrow to do this again. See you then. Have a good night. Bye.

02:26 (IST)5 DEC 2022

A couple of tweets before we end this one.

02:26 (IST)5 DEC 2022

England will face France on Saturday evening in what should be a classic encounter.

02:24 (IST)5 DEC 2022

FULL-TIME! England 3 Senegal 0. So easy for England after that first goal as Senegal just crumbled after that. Goals from Henderson, Kane and Saka earning England a spot in the quarter-final.

02:19 (IST)5 DEC 2022

4 minutes of added time.

02:10 (IST)5 DEC 2022

Final change for England: Henderson off and Kalvin Phillips is on.

02:09 (IST)5 DEC 2022

Almost a fourth for England but Kane at full stretch can't reach a perfect cross from Rashford on the right.

02:05 (IST)5 DEC 2022

Another double substitution from England: Bellingham and Stones off. Mason Mount and Eric Dier are on. 

02:04 (IST)5 DEC 2022

YELLOW CARD TO Kalidou Koulibaly for barging down Harry Kane.

02:03 (IST)5 DEC 2022

A free-kick to Senegal on the inside-right channel but it's wide of the post and Pickford had it covered.

01:53 (IST)5 DEC 2022

England double-change: Saka and Foden off. Rashford and Grealish on.

01:47 (IST)5 DEC 2022

GOAL! Bukayo Saka in the 57th minute! England 3 Senegal 0. England are cruising now. Senegal dive into challenges but Foden slips away on the left, he nutmegs Koulibaly as he passes and Saka has the awareness to lift it over Mendy. That should be the game now and a place in the quarter-finals.

01:45 (IST)5 DEC 2022

Kane has no-one to pass the ball to so shoots at goal and it is just about kept out by Mendy.

01:35 (IST)5 DEC 2022

Senegal make three changes: Ndiaye, Diatta and Ciss are replaced by Gueye, Dieng and Pape Sarr.

01:34 (IST)5 DEC 2022

Second half begins.

01:22 (IST)5 DEC 2022

STAT: That was Kane's first goal in this World Cup and he may well have booked his side a spot in the quarter-finals.

01:19 (IST)5 DEC 2022

HALF-TIME! England 2 Senegal 0. England in total comfort after goals from Henderson and Kane. Senegal who were gaining a foothold in the game till that first goal have been carved open before the end. A long way back for them from here.

01:19 (IST)5 DEC 2022

GOAL! Harry Kane in the 47th minute! England 2 Senegal 0. That is the perfect counter-attacking goal. Bellingham steals the ball way inside his own half, dribbles a couple and passes to Foden on the left and Kane is away on the right, he gets it from Foden, a couple of touches later it's rifled past Mendy. As clinical a finish as you can get.

01:14 (IST)5 DEC 2022

Koulibaly has had a bad game so far. He gives the ball away and Shaw is down the left but a heavy touch and Mendy closes him down as he gets across.

01:12 (IST)5 DEC 2022

Almost a second for England. Saka on the right and he feeds Kane who skies it over. Was leaning back and did not get the contact he wanted. Surely a chance by his high standards.

01:10 (IST)5 DEC 2022

GOAL! Jordan Henderson in the 38th minute! England 1 Senegal 0. Against the run of play, England score. Harry Kane drops deep, drags men towards him, slips in Bellingham on the left who slides the ball to Henderson - who has a made a run from midfield untracked - the Liverpool veteran side-foots past the diving Mendy.

01:03 (IST)5 DEC 2022

Nice play down the left and Dia was away past Stones but Pickford with a strong left hand.

01:02 (IST)5 DEC 2022

Brilliant save by Jordan Pickford to prevent Boulaye Dia from opening the scoring. First shot on target in the game.

00:54 (IST)5 DEC 2022

In that phase of play the ball hit Stones' arm but that was from the thigh, a ricochet. VAR has a look and gets on with it.

00:54 (IST)5 DEC 2022

A chance for Senegal but Ismaila Sarr can't turn it in. It comes from a Harry Maguire giveaway to a man in a dangerous area. Pickford did well and just about enough to force Sarr to sky it wide. 

00:52 (IST)5 DEC 2022

A corner is taken by Foden on the right but Stones shoulders it well wide. 

00:51 (IST)5 DEC 2022

No shots on target in the first 20 minutes.

00:46 (IST)5 DEC 2022

STAT courtesy BBC: Aged 19 years and 158 days, Jude Bellingham is the second teenager to start in a World Cup knockout match for England, after Michael Owen (18 years 198 days) against Argentina in 1998.

00:43 (IST)5 DEC 2022

It is England who have started on the front foot and Senegal are a bit of a mess at the back with Kalidou Koulibaly all over the place. But Kane's cross from the left does not meet any England shirt.

00:39 (IST)5 DEC 2022

Almost a calamity at the back for Senegal as Abdou Diallo is closed down by Saka but the defender stands strong and Mendy comes to collect the ball.

00:35 (IST)5 DEC 2022

Early chance for Boulaye Dia who is through but a combination of Stones and Maguire shepherd the ball to the keeper.

00:30 (IST)5 DEC 2022


00:25 (IST)5 DEC 2022

The players are now singing their anthems.

00:02 (IST)5 DEC 2022

23:46 (IST)4 DEC 2022

The players are out for the warm-ups.

23:23 (IST)4 DEC 2022

Also a change for Senegal and an enforced one at that: Idrissa Gueye is out through suspension so Krepin Diatta comes into midfield.

23:22 (IST)4 DEC 2022

Just the one change for England: Bukayo Saka comes in for Marcus Rashford.

23:22 (IST)4 DEC 2022

Senegal XI: E Mendy, Koulibaly, N Mendy, Dia, Ciss, Ndiaye, Jakobs, Diatta, Sarr, Sabaly, Diallo.

23:22 (IST)4 DEC 2022

England XI: Pickford, Walker, Shaw, Rice, Stones, Maguire, Henderson, Kane, Saka, Foden, Bellingham.

23:11 (IST)4 DEC 2022

The lineups are next. Stay tuned.

23:11 (IST)4 DEC 2022

Phil Foden and Marcus Rashford started against Wales and were involved in all three goals. But Bukayo Saka is fit again and there's Mason Mount who dropped to the bench in the last game ready to go. So which formation will Southgate go with?

23:10 (IST)4 DEC 2022

Here's breaking news from England's camp: Raheem Sterling will not be playing tonight due to a family matter.

A statement from the FA read: “Raheem Sterling is not available for selection for the Three Lions tonight as he is dealing with a family matter.”

23:08 (IST)4 DEC 2022

Some team news to look forward to before the lineups are out. Starting with Senegal who won't have the services of Idrissa Gueye, who picked up two yellow cards during the group stage, thus ruling him out tonight. Cheikhou Kouyate, who was stretchered off in their opening game with the Netherlands will also miss the game.

23:03 (IST)4 DEC 2022

Some pre-match stats courtesy BBC:

England have never lost in seven previous World Cup matches against African opposition (W4 D3); their only previous such game in the knockout stage came against Cameroon in the 1990 quarter-final, winning 3-2 after extra time, with their goals coming from David Platt and two Gary Lineker penalties.

England are looking to reach the quarter-final in consecutive editions of the World Cup for the first time since 2002/2006 - the Three Lions have been eliminated from just two of their seven round of 16 ties at the tournament, doing so against Germany in 2010 (1-4) and via penalty shootout against Argentina in 1998.

African nations have lost eight of their nine World Cup knockout round games against European sides, with the exception being Senegal's 2-1 win over Sweden in the round of 16 in 2002. However, in all competitions, England have never lost against an African side in their history (W14 D6).

Senegal have reached the knockout stage of the World Cup for the second time, previously doing so in their first appearance in 2002 (quarter-final). Courtesy of beating Qatar and Ecuador in the group stages, Senegal have won consecutive World Cup matches for the first time.

23:03 (IST)4 DEC 2022

More from Southgate

"We will be considered favourites," Southgate said.

"But that doesn't really mean anything in a one-off game," the England boss added.

"It doesn't mean there isn't any pressure for Senegal because every international team has great pressure in their own nation and externally as well."

22:58 (IST)4 DEC 2022

England manager Gareth Southgate believes his side are ready for a penalty shootout if it comes to that.

“Well, like every other aspect of our game, we're prepared and we've had a process that we've followed,” said Southgate.

“We've had three shoot-outs, we've won two, so inevitably the one that you don't get over the line you reflect and you think about how you can improve those processes.

“We've done that over the last few months, in particular, but of course, there is so many other aspects to the game that we've got to get right.

“We're aiming to win the game and to avoid extra-time if you can, and to avoid penalties if you can, because you'd like to get a victory in 90 minutes.

“But if we need to go 120 minutes, if we need to go beyond that, then we've got to be ready for that mentally and physically. And I believe we are.”

22:52 (IST)4 DEC 2022

Senegal coach Aliou Cisse, is a doubt to be on the touchline after he missed Saturday's media duties through illness.

"He has been sick for a couple of days now," said assistant coach Regis Bogaert, who replaced Cisse at the news conference.

"He let us take charge of training yesterday, obviously with his instructions to the players.

"Hopefully tomorrow he will be able to come and be on the bench with the players but we are sure at 10pm he will be there with the team.

"I can confirm he is sick and has a bit of a temperature, that is why we have to be careful with his situation."
