Today at the World Cup – all eyes on England’s quarter-final bid

England take on Senegal in the round-of-16 on Sunday as they bid to reach the World Cup quarter-finals for the second successive tournament. Gareth Southgate’s side finished top of Group B, but face a tough task against the reigning Africa Cup of Nations holders, who finished second in Group A behind the Netherlands. World champions France take on Poland in Sunday’s other knockout match, while Argentina and the Netherlands booked their places in the last eight with wins against Australia and the USA respectively on Saturday. Here, the PA news agency looks at what lies ahead on the second day of last-16 matches and how Saturday’s action unfolded. Southgate embraces expectation England head coach Gareth Southgate is embracing the increased expectation as England begin the World Cup knockout phase on Sunday with a tough clash against Senegal. All eyes will be on cavernous Al Bayt Stadium as the Group B winners play their first knockout match on the world stage since their agonising extra-time defeat to Croatia in the 2018 semi-finals. “I guess the biggest thing is the expectation levels and the satisfaction levels,” Southgate said. “We have to take a step at a time, the same thing. We talked about that from the beginning of the tournament. “Our first objective was to qualify from the group. We knew we had three games to do that. There was an awful lot of noise after our second, but we stayed calm and on track, and we’ve qualified as well as anybody else has. “But we’re now on to the more important part of the competition and we’ve got to get this bit right as well.” Senegal boss in race to beat illness Senegal head coach Aliou Cisse could miss his side’s clash against England due to illness. The 46-year-old former Birmingham and Portsmouth midfielder was missing from his media duties on Saturday, the day before the fixture against England in Al Khor, having also been unable to take training on Friday. “He has been sick for a couple of days now,” said assistant coach Regis Bogaert, who replaced Cisse at the press conference. “He let us take charge of training yesterday, obviously with his instructions to the players. “Hopefully tomorrow he will be able to come and be on the bench with the players but we are sure at 10pm he will be there with the team. “I can confirm he is sick and has a bit of a temperature, that is why we have to be careful with his situation.” Deschamps wary of another upset France boss Didier Deschamps warned the defending champions they cannot afford to become another World Cup casualty. The 2018 winners face Poland on Sunday in their last 16 clash having already lost 1-0 to Tunisia in the group stage. Germany and Belgium suffered surprise early exits while Spain lost to Japan and Argentina were stunned by Saudi Arabia. Deschamps said: “Will there be other surprises? I only believe what I see. Today, even a great nation, if she is not ready, can have unpleasant situations. “All the games are difficult, last night too. All the teams are good and prepared. The players all play in good leagues. “This team (Poland) has had to defend in the first three games, defend a lot, and they defend very well. They love it.” More Messi magic Messi provided the first moment of quality to fashion Argentina’s breakthrough against a well-drilled Australia late in the first half, playing a one-two with Nicolas Otamendi on the edge of the penalty area before side-footing into the bottom corner. It was Messi’s 789th career goal, his 94th in 169 senior appearances for his country and his first in the World Cup knockout stages. Julian Alvarez pounced on an error by Australia goalkeeper Mat Ryan to put two-time world champions in full control early in the second half, but out of nowhere, Craig Goodwin’s deflected shot threw Australia a lifeline. Argentina threatened to regain their two-goal lead, but it needed Manchester United defender Lisandro Martinez’s brilliant last-ditch tackle to deny Aziz Behich and goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez’s crucial save in the dying moments to keep out Australia’s teenage substitute Garang Kuol’s effort. Netherlands serve warning Netherlands became the first team through to the World Cup quarter-finals with an entertaining 3-1 victory over the USA. Memphis Depay finished off a superb move to open the scoring in the 10th minute and Daley Blind made it two at Khalifa International Stadium just before half-time. The US threatened a comeback when Haji Wright pulled one back in the 76th minute but Denzel Dumfries ensured it was the Dutch that progressed to the last eight with their third five minutes later. Van Gaal’s side have been heavily criticised in the Dutch media for being boring but they provided one of the best moves of the tournament for their first goal, passing their way through their opponents before Dumfries cut the ball back for the onrushing Depay to sweep the ball into the bottom corner.

Philippines to produce world champions again with new generation of fighters, says ONE CEO

MANILA, Philippines — ONE Championship Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong expressed his belief that the Philippines will bounce back in his promotion, after Joshua Pacio yielded the last remaining world championship held by the country to Jarred Brooks in ONE 164 at the Mall of Asia Arena Saturday night.Erstwhile the owners of five world championship belts, the Philippines now holds none with all former titlists having failed to keep their straps.Pacio ended a three-year reign as strawweight champion in a unanimous decision loss to Brooks, while former champions like Eduard Folayang, Brandon Vera, and Geje Eustaquio all absorbed losses in the card as well. Vera even announced his retirement from MMA.For Sityodtong, it's simply a sign that time has finally caught up with Philippine MMA's pioneers."You know, I'll tell you that's life for all of us. Time, nobody beats Father Time." said Sityodtong after the fights."And it does look like they're passing the torch." he added.Despite relinquishing the championship belt, the Philippines had a glimmer of hope in the stacked card as youngsters like Jhanlo Sangiao and Jeremy Pacatiw were able to eke out big wins that turned into US$50,000 bonuses as well from Sityodtong.Seeing a new breed of fighters, particularly from famed Baguio stable Team Lakay, Sityodtong believes that it will only be a short time that the Philippines will be without a world champion."When you look at Filipino MMA at the world's highest level, a guy like Jhanlo, a guy like Stephen Loman, you know, these are kids and that's the next generation. In the future, the Philippines are gonna produce world champions again." said Sityodtong.Sangiao, son of Team Lakay head coach Mark Sangiao, was one who stepped up to the challenge in particular. After going 5-0 in his professional MMA career, he expressed desire to bring back glory to the Philippines and Team Lakay."We don't have any belts anymore but that's not the end. We are here, we are rising. We'll do our best to get back, not only four, but more belts." said Sangiao.
