The newspaper front pages were united in celebrating England’s 3-0 win, sending the team into the quarter-finals against France
Excitement over England’s 3-0 win against Senegal is evident across front pages on Monday. The Guardian carries an image of captain Harry Kane, Phil Foden and Bukayo Saka under the headline “Three … and easy. England see off Senegal”.
Kane, Saka and Jordan Henderson all scored in a match that chief sports reporter Sean Ingle says will lay down “a significant marker” before the team’s quarter-final meeting with France.

The Times says “Lions roar through to quarter-final”. The paper’s chief sports writer, Owen Slot, says the team’s performance has inflicted a “reawakening of familiar hopes and dreams on a nation of supporters”.
Despite the team’s achievements as the tournament’s top goal scorers, the “accumulation of good news … comes to an abrupt halt when you look at the draw.” Slot writes that France are “the best team thus far in the World Cup.”
