England midfielder Declan Rice knows the Three Lions will face a tough test in Senegal, even without Mane. “I think we’ve had a really good focus throughout the three group games – three really tough group games as well – but we’re onto a bigger test and we know Senegal are going to be really tough,” the West Ham captain said.
“It’s the knock-out stages and we want to win. If you don’t win, you go home, but that’s not what we’re aiming for. We want to get to the end of the tournament.
“There was big pressure around the Iran game, for us to win, and we did that. The USA was a tough game but then to beat Wales, with all the noise around that, we really dominated the game from start to finish. We’re building well and we’re in a nice position, and we’re ready for whatever comes.”
