Joe Hart has set his sights on a clean sheet, ahead of England's clash with San Marino this coming Friday.

England will be looking for victory to climb back to the top of the group, and they will be clear favourites ahead of their clash with the minnows of the group. 

Ahead of the game, Hart said: “I've had a quick check and they still haven’t scored against anybody for a while, so if someone is going to concede against them, I hope it isn’t me."

San Marino haven't scored a single goal since 2004, so the pressure is on Hart to make sure he doesn't concede. 

However, Hart is extremely focussed on winning the match and stated that: 'The aim of the game is to win and if they score, the aim is still to score more than them.'

Ben Foster is back in the England side for the first time since 2011, the West Brom goalkeeper has put in a fine display this season to see him rejoin the England team which will only see his confidence rise.

Next tuesday, England travel to face Montenegro where England drew 2-2 in 2011 during the Euro qualification.

Ahead of the Montenagro game, Hart said:  "It's a big game, it's an exciting game for us and it's almost at the stage like when we're in a World Cup now so we've got to perform basically.

"We went there last year and let a two-goal lead go, but you could say we took our foot off the gas because we only needed a point.

"But it's a different case this time and we're going there with the intentions of doing well."

England will have to play at their best in both games to make sure they claim back-to-back wins. The games are key for England's qualification hopes for next year's World Cup in Brazil.
