San Marino – England Preview

  • For Mediterranean minnows San Marino, the final chapter of this FIFA World Cup qualification (WCQ) campaign tells a very familiar story. They lie bottom of Group I with zero points, but can perhaps take encouragement from scoring their solitary goal against Poland, who lie second and just three points behind opponents England.
  • It will take a miracle (and England’s greatest disaster of all time!) for San Marino to get their first WCQ point since April 2001. Notably, this month marks the 28th anniversary of San Marino’s only H2H goal, which gained fame by arriving just 8.3 seconds into a WCQ group finale.
  • Though England responded to win 7-1, other results condemned them to their only failed WCQ campaign in the past 40 years. No such worries exist this time, following a 5-0 win over Albania at Wembley on Friday evening, which saw all of their goals arrive before half-time. Free from pressure here, although technically they require a point to make sure of top spot, several fringe names are expected to make an appearance.
  • England have sauntered to victory in all three of their previous away H2Hs by a margin of six goals or more. Another effortless victory should be certain, as the Three Lions’ last goal conceded away against a WCQ opponent drawn from the lowest pot dates back to March 2001.
  • Players to watch: Nicola Nanni was not even a year old when England conceded the goal in question, but he still accounts for San Marino’s solitary strike in the current WCQ campaign. Born just 26 days after Nanni, Phil Foden still seeks his first England goal since November 2020, though he assisted on Friday, as well as doing so in the reverse H2H – which also ended 5-0!
  • Hot stat: Seven of England’s last nine WCQ away wins against bottom seeds have seen an even-numbered winning margin.
