Neither Lampard or Gerrard will play tonight while Rooney has been named as England captain.

How many goals will we score this evening?

Knowing us and the crap brand of football we play we wont score much.
This isnt a worthwhile fixture, when are FIFA/UEFA going to sort out this nonsense.

Rooney to bag a hat trick and be labelled "world class" by the morning. :D

No brainer this one. The main thing is to not concede at all, never mind winning.

A decent 5-0 scoreline is on the cards against a team who can only make themselves hard to break down.

DANNY WELBECK, WAYNE ROONEY, and Oxlade Chamberlain with the goals.

DEFOE and Lennon best from the bench.

Friday 12th October

England 5-0 San Marino

2-0 Welbeck 38’
3-0 Rooney 70’
4-0 Welbeck 72'

Any comments on tonights result?

Can England take away any positives from this display?

It can't be easy trying to play a pub team like SM who only defend for 90mins with 11 men behind the ball.

I thought we were poor tonight, not much to take away given the opposition I guess but we lacked a cutting edge against a team that cant defend so something to improve on.

It was a shame about the injury to Walcott in the opening 10 minutes.
Lets hope its nothing too serious.
