Senegal are set to land themselves in hot water with FIFA ahead of their World Cup last-16 match against England.

The African champions, who suffered the devastating blow of losing talisman Sadio Mane just before the tournament began, beat Ecuador 2-1 on Tuesday to secure runners-up spot in Group A.

Aliou Cisse’s side were up against it in Qatar after losing their opening game 2-0 to the Netherlands, but they bounced back with a 3-1 victory over the hosts to set up the winner-takes-all clash against the South Americans, in a match which would feature three goals all scored by players based in England.
