Interestingly, Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford is the Three Lions top scorer at the 2022 World Cup, following a goal in England’s 6-2 thrashing against Iran, as well as a double in their 3-0 victory over Wales, while Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka follows in closely with two goals after a brace versus Iran. Rashford is priced at 9/2 to score first or last on Sunday.
Harry Kane is priced at 5/4 to score his first goal of the competition, having won the Golden Boot with six goals in Russia 2018. The Tottenham Hotspur man has also been boosted to score a header, having done so three times in qualifying for this competition. At present, the 29-year-old is just two goals behind Wayne Rooney’s all-time top scorer record for England on 51 goals.
On the other hand, Senegal have had five different goalscorers in Qatar, with Boulaye Dia, Famara Diedhiou and Bamba Dieng all scoring against the host nation in a 3-1 victory, while Watford’s Ismaila Sarr scored from the penalty spot in their crucial 2-1 win over Ecuador in Group A, before Chelsea defender Kalidou Koulibaly bagged a winner with 20 minutes to go.
Due to Sadio Mane’s pre-tournament injury which ruled the Bayern Munich out of this competition, ex-Bristol City man Diedhiou is their joint-active top scorer at this competition with 11 goals in 26 games, level with Sarr who has managed this tally in 51 appearances. Diedhiou and Sarr are both priced at 5/1 to score anytime.
