These teams have never gone against each other, so this is the first match and it’ll be a big one. It’s not surprising these teams haven’t faced each other on the pitch. England and Senegal play in different confederations, so they don’t regularly meet as part of those games. England are going to be scheduled for more high-profile international friendlies than Senegal, which means they don’t see each other much there either.
