The 2022 FIFA World Cup's knockout stage continues on Sunday, Dec. 4 with an intriguing Round of 16 matchup between England and Senegal.

England's offense was on full display in its latest outing, achieving a convincing 3-0 win over Wales to cap off the group stage. Meanwhile, Senegal has now won back-to-back matches, including a 2-1 victory over Ecuador on Tuesday.

Can England advance beyond the Round of 16 for the second straight World Cup? Or will Senegal shock the world by advancing to the quarterfinals for the first time since 2002?

England vs Senegal Prediction & Pick

Aside from a 0-0 draw against USA, England has been one of the better offensive teams at the 2022 World Cup. The English's two victories came by a combined score of 9-2, but don't be surprised if they're challenged by the Senegalese, who have five goals in their last two outings.

Even with the opposition pushing, I expect England to advance to the quarterfinals. Although Senegal has been finding the back of the net, Ecuador and Qatar hardly posed the same challenge that England brings to the table. Furthermore, Senegal proved that it isn't ready to handle a World Cup contender, losing 2-0 to Netherlands to open the tournament.

Final Score Prediction: England: 3 | Senegal: 1

As mentioned before, England and Senegal are two countries that haven't been afraid to score at the World Cup. The two sides have combined for 14 goals at the event thus far and it won't be surprising if there's a higher-than-expected final score on Sunday.

With a trip to the quarterfinals on the line and both sides likely stepping up, back the over on the 2.5-goal total.
