The Three Lions have been one of the best passing teams in the tournament. Through three games, England rank second among all World Cup teams in passing accuracy (89%) and third in passes completed (1,713). Gareth Southgate's men also are fourth in long passes completed (99).
In addition, England face a Senegal team that has struggled on defense so far in Qatar.

They also rank 30th among all World Cup teams in aerial duels lost (54) and 26th in total tackles (32).
Why you should back Senegal
The Lions of Teranga have one of the best goalkeepers in the world in Edouard Mendy. In January, Mendy was named by FIFA as the world's best goalkeeper of 2021, after he won the Champions League with Chelsea and kept a clean sheet in the final against Manchester City. Then he put in a standout effort in the Africa Cup of Nations final, as Senegal outlasted Egypt on penalties to win their first title.
In addition, Senegal have done an excellent job of winning the ball when it's in the air. Senegal have won 55 aerial duels through three matches, which ranks second among all World Cup teams. Centerback Kalidou Koulibaly leads the team with eight aerial duels won.
