Kane is the king of the pack

The future of the English team is assured, despite Gareth Southgate. Lhe youth and the talent of players like Bellingham, Saka and Foden augur a future for the three lions in which they will always be among the favorites in any competition. Even more so while they remain under the tutelage of a Kane who still has a reel left. A pity that all this potential is, for the moment, in the hands of a technician who prefers to destroy and run rather than risk and have fun. As long as the results in the World Cup are with him, his head will remain intact, but after England’s relegation in the Nations League, any setback will mean his downfall. Luckily for him, the English have attacking players who convert almost everything they generate into a goal. Against Senegal, their first three approaches ended in a goal and they sealed their place in the quarterfinals without having to step on the accelerator, a small advantage before facing their first great bull in this World Cup, Mbappé’s France.

Before the topic of African team, physical teamNot exactly a daredevil, Southgate started Henderson instead of the group-stage starter Mount. The English coach preferred muscle to magic. It is true that the change in the system allowed England to press higher than in previous games, but it also lacked freshness in the creation zone. In fits and starts, with more drive than possession, England had more control in the opening minutes, but that control failed to materialize on clear occasions. The lack of rhythm and speed in the game benefited Senegal, who wanted a slow game in which little happened. In fact, perhaps out of boredom, the Senegalese caught the English defense asleep and had the first great chance of the game, but Sarr, alone against Pickford, sent the ball sky-high. That first notice gave wings to the African team, which took a step forward and Dia was close to opening the scoring again, but a saving hand from the English goalkeeper prevented Senegal from taking the lead.

Little used to dominating, the Senegalese left many spaces behind and England took advantage of it at the first opportunity they had to run. Kane asked for it with his back attached to a band and facilitating an inside lane for Bellingham, who launched into the race, received space, got into the area and waited for the arrival of Henderson, whom he assisted to make it 1-0. Southgate was breathing. The entry of the Liverpool player was more than justified.

The goal knocked out Senegal, who were already thinking about the break when England made it 2-0. Again Bellingham, for which Dortmund will ask Florentino Pérez or whoever is half of his assets and a firstborn, led a counter that ended, after passing through Foden, in the boots of Kane, who had not yet scored in this World Cup and that he shot Mendy. The English captain, top scorer in Russia 2018, has been benzemized in recent years. Even if he doesn’t score, he always improves any play. That is why no one had questioned his lack of goals in Qatar. Now that he has opened the can, a hurricane is coming.

Saka, who had been down since the game against Iran, scored the third shortly after returning from the break. His assistant was once again Foden, of whom it is not understood that he was a substitute for the first two days. Southgate should trust Guardiola more. If he is a starter at City it will be for a reason. With the 3-0 the game ended. Neither Senegal made a move to try to come back nor England to draw blood. Better save strength, Mbappé is coming.
