England v San Marino
World Cup Qualifying
K.O 20.00, ITV 1


(Max 10 only)
1 Nov 1993 World Cup Qualifying, San Marino 1 -7 England
17 Feb 1993 World Cup Qualifying, England 6 – 0

The oft-repeated phrase, ‘there is no easy game in international football’, surely doesn’t apply to tonight’s match between England and San Marino at Wembley. The visitors have only won one game in their 114-match history and that was against fellow minnows Liechtenstein. The Sammarinese haven’t scored in their last 19 competitive games and their coach has already conceded defeat saying, ‘it’s just by how many.’

The England team will be licking their lips at getting in amongst the goals and in the only two games England have played San Marino before they thumped 13 past them. But San Marino striker Davide Gualtieri’s goal inside nine seconds in the 1993 game between the sides is still the fastest goal in a World Cup match of any description.

However, layers don’t fancy them to get on the scoresheet later and both teams to score is around 5.7 on BETDAQ. It really should be a question of how many for England and with a few players out through suspension or injury there will be a lot of faces trying to make an impression ahead of the more difficult trip to Poland next Tuesday.

The only way we can really profit from this game is to either go down the correct score route, which could be anything, or lump on England on the Asian handicap -5.5 at 1.73.

A 6-0 win should be well within England’s range considering San Marino have lost 13-0 to Germany and 11-0 to the Netherlands in recent times. They also lost 6-0 to Montenegro on their most recent outing.

RECOMMENDATION: (1-10 points)
Back England on the Asian Handicap -5.5 at around 1.73 on BETDAQ: 8 points

Thursday: +4.68 points
