Qatar 2022: England Prepared For Penalties Against Senegal

England head coach Gareth Southgate has said the Three Lions are prepared for penalties ahead of facing Senegal in the World Cup Round of 16.

The former world champions won their first-ever World Cup penalty shootout to beat Colombia and advance to the quarter-finals.

Their latest shootout, though, ended in defeat – an agonising loss to Italy in the final of the European Championship at Wembley last year.

Southgate says the squad have been focusing on their spot-kicks in training.

“We were not moving far from what we did, but there are some things we thought we could nail down even tighter and we have been working on that for a while,” he said.

“There is a balance of not making that a bigger drama than it needs to be but, at the same time, making sure we are prepared.”

    Be prepared, this snatch-and-crumble coach. Several years ago, I read a simple play in high school: This is our Time. This is the current mood and belief of Africans. Senegal will do it for us, This is our Time.
