We raised an English flag from the tallest statue in Senegal ahead of the Three Lions clash – as footie fans admit ‘we fear Foden’

THE Sun on Sunday took over Africa’s tallest statue ahead of England’s competitive game against Senegal tonight.

We cheekily raised the St. George’s flag in front of the 52-metre-tall monument to the African Renaissance, which overlooks the country’s capital, Dakar.

Completed in 2010, the bronze statue commemorates 50 years of independence from France.

Commissioned by Senegal’s then-President Abdoulaye Wade, it depicts an idealized African family.

The stunt comes after Senegalese footy fans said yesterday that while they have faith in their own Lions stars, they fear England’s young Three Lions, particularly Marcus Rashford.

Coach Ernest, 34, said: “We fear Marcus Rashford, Harry Kane and Phil Foden.

“These players are world class and they play at the biggest clubs. They can always score because they are top players.”

Nearly 18 million Senegalese will roar their lions in bars and pop-up fan zones across the country tonight.

Fans will gather hours before the start of the game to secure good seats to watch the last 16 grudges play.

The Senegalese victory will ensure millions of fans take to the streets to celebrate.

An England win takes us to the Quarters where we play either France or Poland.

At the 2018 World Cup, England defeated Colombia 4-3 on penalties in the round of 16 of the competition.
