England is officially running away from Senegal in their Round of 16 match. Bukayo Saka scored his third goal of the 2022 World Cup and England leads Senegal 3-0 after the 57th minute.

Barring an epic meltdown, the Three Lions are going to advance to the quarterfinals and face their long-time rivals, France. This will be the 32nd time the two soccer powers have faced off in international competition. England leads the all-time series 17-5-9 and won both times they previously faced off in the World Cup, in 1966 and 1982.
