Jordan Henderson opened the scoring for England before Harry Kane put them 2-0 up by the end of the first half. Bukayo Saka then added a third in the second half to complete the mission.

The Gareth Southgate men advance to the Quarterfinals where they meet defending champions France, who, earlier in the day, defeated Poland to advance.

With Senegal out, Morocco are the only African team left in the mundial, and they will face Spain in their round of 16 clash on Tuesday.
