England is the only nation who hasn’t received yellow cards in World Cup. The english players have beev very disciplined in this competition. In four matches, England have conceded only two golas and have scored 12 goals.

This England team looks serious in this competion.  They just qualified for quarter-final by beating three-nil Senegal.

Jordan Henderson opened the scoring for England. Harry Kane got the second — and is now just one goal shy of equaling Wayne Rooney’s England record — with Bukayo Saka scoring the third.
England were without Raheem Sterling due to a “family matter”.

Kane spoke to ITV in the UK after the victory: “Really chuffed. Knockout games are never easy. We’ve shown great maturity through the tournament. It’s 3-0 against a really good side.
“Their mentality was top from the beginning, and we took our chances when they came. We feel good. We’ve got good runners and good players. We’re solid at the back. Three clean sheets in a row is really important.
“We have a great mixture of youth and experience. Another knockout win. It was a very good night.
“We’ll enjoy this one, but our focus turns to France. It’ll be a really tough game, they’re reigning champions, it’ll be a good battle. We’ll recover nicely and get ready for the game.”

This match was only the second time Senegal have conceded three goals in a World Cup match, after their 3-3 draw with Uruguay in the 2002 group stage.
Today goes down as Senegal’s heaviest-ever defeat at a major tournament.

England have reached the quarter-finals of the World Cup for a 10th time.
