England World Cup 2022 Preview

England earned harsh public criticism for their bloodless performance against the USA on the second matchday of the group stage, but made up for it with a 3-0 win over Wales.

Against the Welsh, the English never left any doubt that the game could go down the drain. Already in the first half England were clearly the better team, only the goals were missing. But the goals came in the second half: two goals by Marcus Rashford and another by Phil Foden made England’s clear victory perfect.

Team boss Gareth Southgate had made a few rotations against the Welsh, including putting Jordan Henderson into the starting eleven.

Overlyzer Live Trends England Wales
At the beginning of the second half, England decided the game against Wales in their favor!

England scored nine goals in the group stage and thus demonstrated their great attacking power. England’s squad density continues to be impressive and team boss Southgate can draw from a wide range of options.

Against Senegal, England will naturally be looking for a lot of possession and constant pressure. England’s midfield should be clearly superior to Senegal’s and with the necessary passing accuracy they will be able to keep the Africans well in check. The British are clearly the favorites because of the difference in quality.

Senegal World Cup 2022 Preview

The 2022 Africa Cup winners were considered to be contenders for a place in the last 16 before the tournament, and in the end they did so. However, due to the absence of Sadio Mané, Senegal was not as convincing as one would have expected before the World Cup.

In the group stage, the team was able to get the necessary points, but the Senegalese did not really play well. The 2-0 defeat against the Netherlands was unfortunate, but expected. The same was true of the 3-1 loss to Qatar, in which Senegal was shaky at times and Qatar was on the verge of picking up their first and only point in the tournament.

Only against Ecuador – in the decisive match of Group A – did Senegal show a very mature performance. Led by strong captain Kalidou Koulibaly, who contributed a goal himself, the strong South Americans were defeated 2-1. The second goal for Aliou Cissé’s side was scored by Ismaila Sarr, who was one of his side’s strongest along with Koulibaly, Pape Gueye and Youssouf Sabaly.

Overlyzer Live Trends Senegal Ecuador
Especially in the first half, Senegal had clear advantages over Ecuador.

After disappointing in the 4-4-2 against Qatar, Senegal were again convincing against Ecuador in the 4-2-3-1. The stable centre did a good job keeping the dynamic Ecuadorians away from goal.

This will also be the approach against England, against whom it is primarily a matter of consolidating the centre and accepting the duels. What needs to improve significantly against England, however, is their passing ability. So far, the Senegalese have been too error-prone and they cannot afford to lose as many balls as they did in the group phase against England.

Team comparison

In favor of England:

+ Significant edge in terms of quality
+ Impressive squad density – coach Southgate can add a lot from the bench
+ The attack is in good form and has scored nine goals so far
+ The defense has stabilized since the first group game against Iran
+ Intelligent, technically brilliant central midfield

In favor of Senegal:

+ Strong physicality on almost all positions
+ The team can once again adopt a wait-and-see attitude against England
+ Dangerousness when it comes to set-pieces

The last duel

England and Senegal have never met in football history. The clash in the round of the last 16 of the 2022 World Cup will be the first meeting between these two nations.

Possible opponents in the quarter-finals

The winner of the clash between England and Senegal will face the winner of the round of the last 16 between France and Poland in the quarter-finals.

England – Senegal Over Under Prediction

While England have a notably strong attack, the level of physicality Senegal will bring to this game is something they have not faced in the World Cup so far.

The Senegalese will stand very deep against England and give the 1966 World Champions a tough fight. It will therefore be difficult for England to find solutions against Senegal’s tightly packed defense or centre. Crosses will probably not be an option because Senegal’s powerful centre backs will clear everything away.

We therefore expect a game in which not many goals will be scored. Also because Senegal won’t be able to make many dangerous attacks. We are betting on an “Under 2.5”, i.e. a maximum of two goals scored in the match.

England – Senegal Prediction

The fact that the higher individual quality does not always make the difference has already been proven at this tournament. Ask Denmark, Belgium or Germany!

England, however, have an impressive squad density and can therefore adapt spontaneously and precisely to changing requirements in a game. Hardly any other team is so versatile and can bring in such strong players from the bench. Against Wales, for example, players like Bukayo Saka, Mason Mount or Raheem Sterling only remained on the bench.

This power will be a bit too much for Senegal and that is why we are betting on an England victory after 90 minutes.

England – Senegal Correct Score Bet

The Senegalese will certainly not give England an easy time. It can be assumed that Aliou Cissé’s team will put up a strong fight and counter the English with the necessary toughness. However, it is also to be expected that Senegal will not launch many counterattacks themselves, because the central midfield of the British is clearly superior and should control the game well.

We therefore expect the match to be a tight affair in which small details will decide victory or defeat. We are betting on a 1-0 win for England, which the “Three Lions” will have to work hard for.
