Bank on a 2nd-half England romp!

Ok lets face it, San Marino have no chance of beating England and should be more like 10,000/1 rather than the 100/1 on offer.

They are joint-bottom of FIFA’s World Rankings (#207, with Bhutan and Turks & Caicos Islands) and have lost every single one of their last 50 fixtures, a run which goes all the way back to 2004 when they registered their only victory to date, beating Liechtenstein in a friendly.

Not only that but they have scored in just 1 of their last 25 games (v Malta in a friendly).

Germany hold the record for the biggest defeat of San Marino (13-0) and whilst the Three Lions are unlikely to get close to that total, the players will be looking at this fixture to boost their international goals record.

The correct score odds are too tight to play with and so instead its better to look towards the goalscorer markets.

Wayne Rooney has netted in each of his 3 last domestic starts and the Manchester United star is Evs to bag a brace with Coral and 5/1 to complete the hat-trick with SkyBet.

Frank Lampard looks set to start and is 4/1 with VC Bet to score 2 or more, which looks a decent price given his goalscoring record and the fact he will take any penalties which come our way.

Finally it’s worth considering the 21/20 with William Hill for the 2nd half to be the highest scoring of the two.

Stats show that the 2nd half of most games see the most goals and San Marino have a history of collapsing late on as they tire. They have conceded more 2nd half goals in their three World Cup 2014 qualifiers so far (Montenegro 0-2/0-6, England 0-2/0-5 and Moldova 0-0/0-2).

And if you are looking for a short-priced banker to put the mortgage on, you could do worse than William Hill‘s 2/9 for England to Win To Nil (1/12 elsewhere).

Likely England X1:
Hart; Walker, Smalling, Lescott, Baines; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lampard, Cleverley, Young; Rooney, Defoe

Got something to say?
