England and Senegal face off on Sunday in the World Cup Round of 16 soccer showdown at Al Bayt Stadium. 

England finished in first place in Group B picking up seven points. England opened up the World Cup with a 6-2 victory over Iran. In the second game against the United States, England played to a 0-0 draw. In the last game against Wales, they bounced back and were able to secure a 3-0 victory. Marcus Rashford scored in the 50th and 68th minutes to secure the victory. There are a ton of options and changes that could be made heading into this game. One option might be Raheem Sterling moving back into the starting lineup/ There is a ton of pressure on this England team to find success, and a loss in this game would be shocking. England needs to put pressure on the Senegal defense and try to get the early goal. 

On the other side of this matchup is Senegal who finished in second place in Group A picking up six points. In the first game against the Netherlands, Senegal couldn’t get anything going, and they ended up losing 2-0. In the second game against Qatar, Senegal’s defense looked good, and they were able to secure a 3-1 victory. In the last game against Ecuador the offense was again strong, scoring two goals, and they won by a goal. Senegal is dealing with some key players missing heading into this game. Sadio Mané is out injured and Idrissa Gueye is also suspended. 

England has all the pressure on them, but they are going to be the team that finds success in this game. Senegal is going to struggle to get through the England defense and I expect them to be shut out. England is going to score a couple of goals here and that will be the difference. Back England on the money line.
