Senegal celebrate one of their goals at the 2022 World Cup.They Fave England tonight In last 16 battle

Senegal must stick to their attacking principles to beat England in the last 16 of the World Cup, according to former international Omar Daf.   

The encounter which kicks off at 10PM East African time will be televised on KBC channel 1 tonight.

The West Africans won their first continental title in February but will come up against a side which reached the World Cup semi-finals in Russia four years ago and then finished as runners-up at the European Championship last year.

Yet Daf wants the Teranga Lions to play on the front foot despite facing attacking talents including Marcus Rashford who has three goals in Qatar, and 2018 golden boot winner Harry Kane.

"Senegal are the African champions so we must continue to be ambitious," the 45-year-old, part of the Senegal squad which reached the last eight of the 2002 World Cup said.

"Tactically, we will have to be very strong to beat this English team.

"The English are complete defensively, in the middle and even in terms of their offensive animation. But we have the weapons to continue this adventure."

The winners of the game on Sunday will face either defending champions France or Poland in the quarter-finals.
