‘Only one team has impressed me more than England’: Jamie Carragher hails the Three Lions’ performance in last-16 win against Senegal… but labels quarter-final opponents France as the best team at the World Cup!

Jamie Carragher has said only one team has played better than England at the World Cup – their quarter-final opponents France. 

The Three Lions eased past Senegal 3-0 in their last-16 tie on Sunday evening in a superb showing, setting up a knockout clash with the reigning champions on Saturday night.

And Carragher told The Telegraph at full-time that England have really impressed him at the World Cup – but that Les Bleus have impressed him more.

He said: ‘Very impressive again from England. Yes, we have not played a ‘major’ team yet, but who else is doing this to the so-called lesser nations? 

‘You can only beat what is in front of you, but we are doing it extremely well.

‘There is only one team I have seen that has impressed me more than England in this World Cup. Unfortunately, that team is France.’

France beat Poland 3-1 in their last-16 tie on Sunday afternoon, with forward Kylian Mbappe scoring twice in a virtuoso attacking performance.

The Paris Saint-Germain star is the top scorer at the World Cup with five goals, two clear of his closest competitors in the Golden Boot race, including team-mate Olivier Giroud, Lionel Messi, and England’s Marcus Rashford and Bukayo Saka.

England went unbeaten in their group, beating Iran 6-2, Wales 3-0 either side of a 0-0 draw against the USA, while France beat Australia 4-1, Denmark 2-1 and then lost 1-0 against Tunisia when already qualified for the knockouts.
