Senegal capable of beating England — Okocha

Super Eagles legend Austin Okocha believes Senegal stands a very good chance of beating England when both teams clash on Sunday.

The African Champions will face the 1966 winners for a place in the last eight of Qatar World Cup at the Al Bayt Stadium.

Senegal lost their first game of the tournament, but they recovered and won back to back against Qatar and Ecuador to finish second in Group A, while England won Group B with seven points, after beating Iran, the Wales and drawing United States.

Speaking ahead of the game, Okocha stated that Gareth Southgate’s England are predictable and Senegal could capitalize on that.

“Number one team in Africa, I think they have what it takes to win the game because I don’t think it will be an upset if Senegal wins.

“They have got players that play in the Premier League, players that know the English players and they know what they are coming up against, and they have looked at them.

“The England team is predictable in my opinion. They don’t have players that have got so much flair to decide games, so they rely on that team structure. Senegal have a good chance.

“England are not that physical, aggressive side anymore. They have changed their way of playing, they have adopted this complete football, trying to build from behind, go through the wings and put in crosses which is predictable.”

Senegal last reached the quarter finals of the World Cup in 2022.
