Not many national teams around the world are currently in better shape than England. Three lions are currently in the game and are blowing away every opponent before them.
Gareth Southgate the team entered its last group match in FIFA 2022 World Cup Qualifiers with Poland breathing down their necks. However, England emerged as a beast and, with the help of a very hopeless and unfortunate team from San Marino, they started a riot.
Harry Kane scored four goals. Harry Maguire, Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka also scored goals to conclude an impressive night for the Southgate team, which has reserved its place at the 2022 World Cup.
Free England hit a double-digit number
San Marino is one of the weakest teams in the world. In fact, they are the lowest ranked team by FIFA. However, this does not diminish the performance of England.
The three lions were simply sublime and clinical. There were also some great individual performances that night. Smith Rowe, Jude Bellingham, Calvin Phillips and Trent Alexander-Arnold were at the peak of their game and were simply too much to defend San Marino.
England have won many games with a big score. But their 10-0 win over San Marino remains their biggest in a competitive game, and it was well deserved.
Harry Kane stars in Three Lions again
Harry Kane’s record for England is outstanding. The Tottenham Hotspur striker scored a hat-trick against Albania last week, and added four more against San Marino.
The 28-year-old has now tied with Gary Lineker after raising his goal for England to 48. He is now five away from Wayne Rooney, who is the top scorer of the Three Lions of all time.
“If we had left him (Kane) for another half hour, we would have had Wayne Rooney’s family on the phone,” Southgate joked after the game. Eurosport.
“He’s a phenomenal goal scorer; he didn’t have a chance in games where there were a lot of goals available, and we wanted to give him a chance tonight, and he took advantage of that really well. “
