England next opponents: Who could Gareth Southgate's side face in World Cup last 16?

If England drop to second in their group, they’ll play a day earlier on December 3. Both positions put England up against either the winners or runners-up from Group A.

The Netherlands and Ecuador currently occupy the top two spots in Group A, although Senegal have every chance of sneaking in as well. England and the Netherlands haven’t met in a major tournament since the 1996 European Championship.

Goals from Alan Shearer and Teddy Sheringham helped England thrash the Dutch side 4-1 to top their group. England faced Ecuador in the 2006 World Cup in the last-16 stage with David Beckham’s goal proving to be the difference for the Three Lions.

England have never faced Senegal in their history and this tournament could be the first time they meet.
