England and Senegal played an even match for much of the first half, but the Three Lions have jumped on top. Jordan Henderson punched in a shot in the 38th minute to give England a 1-0 lead. Jude Bellingham assisted on the goal.

Senegal had a shot on goal followed by a second shot in the 38th minute but came up just short. Boulaye Dia saw his shot attempt blocked by keeper Jordan Pickford, and then Ismaïla Sarr kicked the ball off John Stones and out of bounds. There was a question of whether Stones should be called for a handball, but it was ruled a deflection off his waist and thus not in violation of handball rules.

England entered the match -185 favorites to win the match in regular time at DraftKings Sportsbook, while Senegal was +600. England entered -425 overall to advance while Senegal was +320.
