France, England to face off in quarter finals after joint win
At the expense of Senegal and Poland, England and France move on into the quarter-finals, though only one of them will stick for the semis.
France grabbed a somewhat of an easy victory against Poland, snatching a 3-1 ticket to the quarter-finals at the Qatar World Cup.
French striker Kylian Mbappe scored his first goal at 74' and before scoring another during extra time. Meanwhile, his teammate, Olivier Giroud, scored the game's first goal at 44'.
Poland's sole goal came at the last minute from legendary striker Rober Lewandowski, who managed to sneak in a penalty kick.
Giroud became France's record goalscorer during the Sunday match at the Al-Thumama stadium with a total of 52 goals in 117 games played with the team, outpacing Thierry Henry, who has 51 goals in 123 matches.
Mbappe scored his eighth and ninth World Cup goals during today's game. According to statistical service Opta, he became the first player in history to score eight goals at the World Cup before his 24th birthday since Pele in 1958.
England moves on
England managed to win 3-0 against Senegal, allowing itself to move from the round of 16 into the quarter-finals, with its next match being against France after the latter beat Poland for the spot.
Jordan Henderson, Harry Kane and Bukayo Saka all scored in a commanding performance from Gareth Southgate's team who are chasing their first major trophy since winning the 1966 World Cup.
