England vs San Marino
European Championship qualifying
GiveMeSport at Wembley
England will be expecting a comfortable evening in tonight's European Championship qualifying clash with minnows San Marino as Roy Hodgson's side look to maintain their 100% record in Group E.
The Three Lions secured an impressive 2-0 victory in their first group outing as they picked up all three points against Switzerland, whilst San Marino were beaten by the same scoreline against Lithuania.
Hodgson's side will certainly be looking to improve their goal difference against a San Marino outfit who have a dire record on the international scene. There's no doubt about it, all eyes will be on Wayne Rooney and Co. as the Three Lions look to deliver the goods in front of the Wembley crowd.
Rooney, in fact, will see the game as the perfect opportunity to edge ever closer to England's all-time goalscoring record. Bobby Charlton's England record has stood for the past 44-years, but England's captain is currently just eight goals behind him.
Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck, meanwhile, will be hoping to continue his good form for the national side after he scored a brace against the Swiss.
