England are gearing up for their World Cup round of 16 game with Senegal later this evening.

The meeting will be the first time that England and Senegal have ever faced each other in an international fixture.

Senegal finished as runners-up in Group A behind the Netherlands, losing to the Dutch in their opening match before beating Qatar and Ecuador to seal their spot in the knockout rounds.

Gareth Southgate will be weary of the threat posed by the African champions, even with the absence of former Liverpool forward Sadio Mane who was ruled out on the eve of the tournament with a fibula injury.

Southgate faces a dilemma in the centre of the park, with Jordan Henderson impressing during the win over Wales in place of the rested Mason Mount.
