World Cup Ex-Chelsea star, Cundy predicts scoreline of England vs Senegal match. Jason Cundy, a former player for Chelsea, has made a prediction for the result of England’s match against Senegal in the World Cup round of 16 on Sunday.
In the World Cup round of 16, Senegal and England will square off on Sunday.
Senegal defeated Ecuador, while Gareth Southgate’s team won their last group match against Wales.
Cundy made a prediction and thought the Three Lions would triumph 2-1 over the African champs.
Cundy told Grosvenor Sport that Senegal were “decent, not fantastic, but excellent.”
“England will need to perform at their very peak if they want to defeat them, and I believe they will. They will have to contend with England.
Imagine how Senegal would fare if Sadio Mane were on the field. If he was, they could have even won their competition.
“I predict a 2-1 victory for England. Even though it will be tight, England will have too much. However, I do not at all underestimate Senegal.
“England is superior than Senegal in terms of talent, but it will be close since Senegal has physical players who are swift, powerful, and of excellent quality.”
