Monday evening sees England travel to Serravalle to take on San Marino in their final 2022 World Cup qualifier.
England need just one point to secure their spot in Qatar next year, while San Marino will likely be hoping to keep the score down.
Can the hosts frustrate the Three Lions, or will this be as one-sided a game as many fans expect?
San Marino vs England Head-to-Head
It should come as no surprise that San Marino are bottom of this qualifying group and have no hope of making it to Qatar.
The minnows have lost all nine of their games thus far – even falling to fellow strugglers Andorra – and they’ve conceded a shocking 36 goals while scoring just one.
Essentially, it’s unlikely they’ll put any kind of resistance up against England, who have largely strolled through this group and need one more point to guarantee their spot in Qatar.
Gareth Southgate’s men remain unbeaten in this campaign, although some fans were frustrated with their draws against Poland and Hungary.
Most recently, the Three Lions wiped the floor with Albania, scoring five goals before half time to come away with a one-sided win.
Unsurprisingly, the Three Lions have never failed to brush San Marino aside when they’ve met, most recently putting five goals past them when they played at Wembley in March.

San Marino vs England Prediction
There can be little doubt that England will win this game, the only question is by how many goals.
Gareth Southgate is likely to rest most of his key players – he’s got no reason to use them, after all – so we can perhaps expect a slow start.
However, once one goal goes in, it’s likely that we’ll see a rout in favor of the visitors.
