England will face Senegal in the next quarter-finals of the World Cup in Qatar. Head coach Gareth Southgate participated in the pre-match press conference.

Regarding the improvement of the team, Southgate said that they need to improve from set kicks, because the team's efficiency in set kicks has not yet met expectations, so they still need to improve in this area. Every team in the world tries to get better and better at set pieces and even throw-ins.
Southgate also commented on the performance of other teams in the World Cup. He said that they have seen the power of football continue to expand around the world in this competition. South America and Europe have historically dominated, however their group stage has seen Arab and some Asian nations achieve big things against higher ranked teams. It can be seen that these teams have very good players and coaches from all over the world are also at a very high level.
For Senegal , Southgate said that the opponents have very good players and a good structure, and they know that they will face difficult challenges.
