There aren’t many national teams around the world that are in better form right now England. The Three Lions are currently rampaging and blowing away every opponent before them.
By Gareth Southgate the team entered their final match in FIFA 2022 World Cup Qualifiers with Polish neck sigh. However, England appeared in a beast mode, and aided by a very hopeless and unlucky San Marino team, they staged a riot.
Harry Kane has scored four goals. Harry Maguire, Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka also scored to end an impressive night for Southgate’s side, who secured their spot at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
He scored twice as many free goals
San Marino is one of the weakest teams in the world. In fact, they are the team ranked lowest by FIFA. However, that doesn’t detract from England’s performance.
The Three Lions are simply amazing and clinical. There were also some excellent individual performances during the night. Smith Rowe, Jude Bellingham, Kalvin Phillips and Trent Alexander-Arnold played great and there was simply too much for the San Marino defense to handle.
England has won many matches by big scores. But the 10-0 win over San Marino is still their biggest win in a competitive game, and it was well deserved.
Harry Kane returns to star for Three Lions
Harry Kane’s scoring record for England is outstanding. The Tottenham Hotspur striker scored a hat-trick against Albania last week, and four more against San Marino.
The 28-year-old has now moved in with Gary Lineker after bringing England’s total to 48. He is now five behind Wayne Rooney, the Three Lions’ all-time leading goalscorer.
“If we leave him (Kane) for another half hour, we’ll have Wayne Rooney’s family on the phone,” Southgate joked after the game, as quoted by Eurosport.
“He is a phenomenal goalscorer; he didn’t have a chance in games with a lot of goals, and we wanted to give him a chance quickly, and he took it very well. “
