Welcome to our England vs San Marino betting tips, prediction and odds analysis ahead of their African Cup of Nations Qualifier at the Wembley Stadium in London on Thursday.
England will be the firm favourites to win this game. Gareth Southgate’s side will be looking to start their World Cup qualification campaign on a good note so that they can comfortably attain qualification to the showpiece next year.
Head to Head Stats
The teams last played in a Euro 2016 Qualification game in September 2015. England won 6-0 with their goals coming from Wayne Rooney, Ross Barkley, Harry Kane, a brace from Theo Walcott and a Cristian Brolli own goal.
England have won all of their six games against San Marino dating back to 1992.
San Marino have only ever scored one goal against England
Latest England results
England’s last game was a Nations League clash against Iceland last November which they won 4-0.
England have won their last three consecutive games (against Iceland, Belgium and Ireland).
England’s last defeat was in October as they were upset 1-0 in a home Nations League game by Denmark.
Latest San Marino results
San Marino’s last game was a 0-0 Nations League draw against Gibraltar in November.
San Marino have lost four out of their last six games and drawn the other two.
San Marino have not scored a goal since November 2019 when they lost 3-1 against Kazakhstan.
San Marino have nowhere near the quality of England, to the extent that even a 2-0 defeat in this game will be like a win for them. This game will be a formality for England and I expect the English to totally dominate possession and chances created. Gareth Southgate’s men should walk away with a 5-0 win.
Anytime goal scorers
England- Harry Kane: The England captain will be hungry to add to his goals tally and will be a menace to the San Marino defence. In all probability, he will score if he plays the full 90 minutes.
San Marino- Matteo Vitaioli: San Marino hardly score and will probably not score in this game. However, stranger things have happened in football and in life. Though he has just one goal to his name from 62 international appearances, Vitaioli is one of the more experienced members of the San Marino attack and may well start the game.
Our Odds And Tips In Detail
There is a massive gulf in class between the two teams so the extent that even England’s third and fourth choice starting xi would be easily able to beat San Marino. I expect a 5-0 win for England.
