Bukayo Saka scored England’s third, but it was Bellingham’s prodigious work rate and burgeoning quality in possession of him that enabled them to turn the tide.

Bellingham set up Henderson’s opening goal and the Borussia Dortmund midfielder was again involved when England captain Kane scored his first goal of this World Cup. Kane has now scored 11 times in major tournaments, surpassing Gary Lineker as England’s all-time leading goalscorer in those competitions.

But at the tender age of 19, it is Bellingham who has become England’s driving force.

He is the first teenager to attend a World Cup knockout stage match since 1966, and already heralded his arrival on the world stage by scoring his first England goal in a 6-2 win over Iran in their first group match.

Just two years after playing in the English second division with Birmingham, the precocious Bellingham was unfazed by Senegal in the biggest game of his life.

England will need another commanding performance from Bellingham if he is to extend his stay in Qatar beyond the round of 16.

Looking ahead to a third consecutive major tournament semi-final appearance, England will return to the Al Khor desert on Saturday to face the red-hot Kylian Mbappe and company after France defeated Poland 3-1 on Sunday.

Euro 2020 runners-up England have won just one of their last eight meetings with France, which poses a significant threat to their hopes of winning a first major title in 56 years.

The depth of attacking talent available to Southgate could be crucial and, defending his decision to drop Marcus Rashford for Saka despite the striker’s brace against Wales, he boasted that “we have an embarrassment of riches in all areas of the pitch.

After a rocky opening when they passed too slow and looked eager at the back, England sped up to show why Southgate are so confident in them.

Adrenaline rush Fueled by the incessant drumming of their vibrant fans, African champions Senegal initially showed no fear as they tested England’s composure with high pressing.

Senegal squandered a golden opportunity to take the lead when Harry Maguire gave away the ball and Boulaye Dia’s volley deflected past John Stones into the path of Ismaila Sarr, only for the Watford striker to finish from close range.

Taking advantage of England’s nerves, Sarr harassed Saka and Dia took advantage of the loose ball, forcing a fine save from Jordan Pickford with a ferocious shot.

That proved to be the turning point as England took the lead against the flow of play on 38 minutes.

Bellingham raced into Harry Kane’s incisive pass into the Senegal box and sliced ​​a precise cut into the path of Liverpool midfielder Henderson, who he guided his low shot past Edouard Mendy from 12 yards out.

Henderson’s goal served as an adrenaline rush that coursed through England as they doubled their lead seconds before half-time.

Bellingham was the catalyst with his well-timed tackle and a clear pass to Foden, whose perfectly weighted dismissal allowed Kane to run clear for a clinical finish.

England cruised through the second half and, restoring Southgate’s faith, Saka put the result beyond doubt on 57′.

Foden made a dynamic run down the left and Saka reached his cross to launch a clever effort at Mendy from close range.
