How to watch: ITV1 
Odds: England 8/15, Draw 14/5, Senegal 7/1

It’s the Three Lions against the Lions of Teranga as England face Senegal in the last 16 of the World Cup in Al Khor. 

Gareth Southgate’s England finished top of Group B, with a 3-0 win last time out against neighbours Wales boosting confidence in the camp. 

Senegal had a nail-biting final group game against Ecuador, but got the job done with a 2-1 win to progress to the last 16 alongside the Netherlands. 

England and Senegal have never previously met ahead of their showdown at Al Bayt Stadium, with a place in the quarter-finals up for grabs. 

World Cup: Reigning champs need to step up

Where: Al Thumama Stadium, Doha 
When: 15:00, Sunday 4th December 2022 
How to watch: BBC One 
Odds: France 2/7, Draw 4/1, Poland 12/1

Having suffered a shock 1-0 defeat in their last group game against Tunisia, title holders France will be determined to get back to winning ways when they face Poland on Sunday. 

Les Bleus managed to just scrape first place in Group D, thanks to their superior goal difference to Australia, and in the process avoided a last 16 encounter with Argentina. 

Head coach Didier Deschamps did make a host of changes for the Tunisia game and France’s big hitters can be expected to make a return at Al Thumama Stadium. 

As for Poland, they too only just made it to the knockout stages, with goal difference helping them edge out Mexico to the second qualifying spot. 

The Poles are yet to impress in Qatar and will need to go up a few gears to have a chance of toppling the French in Doha. 

League One: Pompey head to Wycombe

What: Wycombe v Portsmouth, League One 
Where: Adams Park, High Wycombe 
When: 12:30, Sunday 4th December 2022 
How to watch: Sky Sports Main Event 
Odds: Wycombe 29/20, Draw 5/2, Portsmouth 9/5

Two teams looking to narrow the gap on the playoff places go head-to-head in League One on Sunday with Portsmouth making the trip to Wycombe Wanderers. 

With just one win in their last five league outings, the Chairboys need to start putting some form together or run the risk of being cut out of the playoff picture. 

Likewise Portsmouth let points slip before the World Cup break, with Pompey playing out four consecutive draws. 

Portsmouth have lost just one of their last six encounters with Wycombe and the visitors are 9/5 to pick up the three points at Adams Park this weekend.
