I'll be your host tonight as we get set for the third round of 16 match.

19:38

We have a good one tonight as England and Senegal battle for a place in the quarter final, where the winner will face France.

19:42

History is on the side of the Three Lions as they have never lost to an African team but Senegal will be eager to prove a point.

19:43

The teams news are out. England make just one change to the team that thrashed Wales, with Marcus Rashford dropping out for Bukayo Saka. This is a surprise as Rashford scored a brace in the 3-0 win over Wales.

19:45

England XI: Pickford, Walker, Shaw, Rice, Stones, Maguire, Henderson, Kane, Saka, Foden, Bellingham.

19:45

Meanwhile, Senegal also make just one change to the side that beat Ecuador, with the suspended Idrissa Gueye dropping out for Kreplin Diatta.

19:47

Senegal XI: E Mendy, Koulibaly, N Mendy, Dia, Ciss, Ndiaye, Jakobs, Diatta, Sarr, Sabaly, Diallo.

England and Senegal team news
19:49

The players are out singing their national anthems.

19:56

Kick off.

20:00

Senegal have started quite well with Boulaye Dia threatening, but Harry Maguire did well to recover and stop the attack.

20:05

England have settled into this game and are now dominating possession. Senegal calm at the back, though

20:11

This is England's first knockout match against an African side since they beat Cameroon 3-2 in the quarter-final of Italia 1990. Senegal will hope for a better account, though

20:21

Penalty shouts for Senegal following a rare chance, but VAR says no.

20:23

This is Senegal's second round of 16 clash in the World Cup after they reached the quarter-final on their debut in 2002.

20:28

First real chance of the game of the game from Senegal as Sarr sets up Dia, but the Salernitana's man shot was brilliantly saved by Jordan Pickford.

20:40

England 1-0 Senegal. Jordan Henderson put England ahead with a neat finish following good work from Jude Bellingham. We may get to see more of that combination at Liverpool.

20:41

It had been all Senegal before then with Sarr causing all sorts of trouble for Walker. But quality will always come to the fore front in knockout games.

20:42

Still a long way to go, though.

20:43

That's Henderoson's second goal in his 73rd cap for England.

You are not too old to score a World Cup goal
20:45

The goal appears to have taken the sting out of Senegal's confidence as they are now firmly on the back foot.

20:46

Two minutes of added time.

20:46

England 2-0 Senegal. Harry Kane finishes a sweet counter attacking move to double England's lead.  This is not the position where Senegal want to be going into the break.

20:48

England 2-0- Half-time. Goals from Henderson and Kane put Southgate's men in the driving seat.

20:49

Senegal were dominating but that Henderson goal took the wind out of their sails

20:52

Second half underway

21:05

England looked comfortable. Senegal will have to show more fight. We still have over half an hour to go.

21:15

England 3-0 Senegal. Bukayo Saka lifts a low cross from Phil Foden past Edouard Mendy. That's game set and match.

21:16

Saka and Foden off for Rashford and Grealish.

21:23

Senegal try their luck from distance but it hits the side net

21:33

More England change. Stones and Bellingham come off with Dier and Mount replacing them

21:35

Into the last 15 minutes

21:35

Four minutes of added time or four minutes left for Senegal to be put out of their misery.

21:50

FT: England 3-0 Senegal. A complete total dominant performance from the Three Lions as Senegal World Cup journey end. Up next for England are the defending champions France. It does not get bigger than that.

21:55

That's our coverage for tonight. We will back again for tomorrow's games. Thank you and have a good night.
