Switzerland 1

[Lewandowski 90+9]

Olivier Giroud became France’s all-time leading goalscorer after helping the World Cup holders reach the quarter-finals with a comfortable victory over Switzerland in Doha.

Giroud netted his 52nd goal for his country just before the break, converting a low cross from Kylian Mbappe to surpass Thierry Henry’s record.

Mbappe stole the show in the second half with two superb goals before Robert Lewandowski scored a consolation goal for the Poles deep into added time from the penalty spot.

England 3

[Henderson 38, Kane 45+3, Saka 57]

Senegal 0

England cruised into the quarter-finals with a convincing win over Senegal in Qatar.

They will meet France on Saturday.

England took the lead through Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson with a close-range finish after excellent work by the impressive Jude Bellingham.

Harry Kane, the Tottenham Hotspur striker, netted his first goal of the tournament before the interval, lashing home after latching onto a through ball from Bellingham.

England made it three when Bukayo Saka, the Arsenal winger, chipped Edouard Mendy, Senegal’s goalkeeper, after a cross from the left by Phil Foden.
