England vs Senegal: important information

When does England vs Senegal kick off?

England vs Senegal kicks off at 2 pm ET/11 am PT/7 pm GMT.

It's the latest game of the day, with France vs Poland playing earlier four hours prior.

Where does England vs Senegal take place?

England vs Senegal takes place at the Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor, Qatar.

This 68,000-seater has already hosted England, when it played USA as its second match. It's the second-biggest stadium used for the World Cup and fittingly is hosting more matches than most, with the opening ceremony taking place on its pitch too.

What you need to know about the match

This is the first team the England and Senegal teams have ever met on the football pitch.

England came top of group B, winning against Iran and Wales, and drawing with the USA, the team which ended as the runner-up of the group.

Senegal was the runner-up of group A. Like England it won two games, against Qatar and Ecuador, but it lost to the Netherlands, the team which topped the group.

As one of the most successful African-nation teams, Senegal will pose a real threat for England. The team won the Africa Cup of Nations earlier in 2022, and has performed well in the few World Cups it's partaken in, though for a lot of the World Cup's existence Senegalese players were part of France's team.

Bookies are putting good odds on England winning the game, though the odds aren't as stark as for the France vs Poland game on the same day, suggesting things could swing in Senegal's favor if it plays its best.
