Henderson’s goal against Senegal means he is England’s second-oldest ever World Cup scorer, after Tom Finney against USSR in 1958 (36 years and 64 days).

For Kane, he has now scored 11 goals at major tournaments for England (7 World Cup, 4 Euros), overtaking @GaryLineker (10) as the Three Lions’ all-time top scorer in such competitions.

After a difficult start to the game, England broke the deadlock in the 38th minute as Henderson swept home a low cross from Jude Bellingham.
