At the Al Bayt Stadium, England picked up steam after a slow start when Jude Bellingham skillfully set up Jordan Henderson for the game's first goal in the 39th minute.

Just before halftime, Bellingham led a brilliant England counterattack, which Harry Kane (45+3) finished off to score his first goal of the competition, making things even better for Gareth Southgate's team.

After the break, Bukayo Saka (57), who had been recalled to the starting lineup, extended England's push into the round of eight with a superb finish off Phil Foden's pass.

In order to keep his team fresh for what lies ahead, Southgate made a number of substitutes, which resulted to a relatively comfortable finish for England.

It sets up a tantalizing matchup with France in the round of eight on Saturday (kickoff 7pm), who were motivated by a brilliant performance from Kylian Mbappe in their 3-1 triumph over Poland.

According to Southgate, his team will significantly improve for the match against the World Cup champions.

Big moments in the game...

23 min: Sarr blazes first chance of game over the crossbar.

32 min: Pickford comes to England’s rescue, making a superb block to deny Dia.

39 min: Bellingham’s squared pass sets up Henderson for England’s opener.

45+3 min: The advantage is doubled as Kane finishes off an exhilarating England counter-attack.

57 min: England extended their lead as Saka turned home Foden’s inch-perfect cross.

Just a reminder...

Before Gareth Southgate's England reached the World Cup semi-finals in 2018, they had not won a knock-out game of any form since 2006.

Opta stats: Free-scoring England advance…

For the tenth time overall, England has advanced to the World Cup quarterfinals. Walter Winterbottom (1954 and 1962), Alf Ramsey (1966 and 1970), Bobby Robson (1986 and 1990), Sven-Göran Eriksson (2002 and 2006), and Gareth Southgate have all accomplished this feat twice (2018 and 2022).

The Three Lions have scored 12 goals in four games of this year's World Cup, which is equal to their total from the previous World Cup and the Euros (12 goals).

After their 3-3 tie with Uruguay in the 2002 group stage, Senegal allowed three goals in a single World Cup game for the second time. This was the country's biggest major tournament loss ever (World Cup and Africa Cup of Nations).

What does the result mean?

England now have a World Cup quarter-final against holders France to look forward to on Saturday December 10.

Kick-off at the Al-Bayt Stadium will be at 7pm.
