England qualify for 2022 World Cup after thrashing San Marino 10-0 | UK News

England have qualified for the World Cup after thrashing San Marino 10-0 in their final qualifying group game.

The Three Lions have now secured enough points to seal their place in Qatar next year.

A strong performance against San Marino seemed inevitable – the team is the world’s worst national team in FIFA rankings and they have lost all of their previous nine group games in qualifying, conceding 36 times and scoring just once.

A tie against Hungary at Wembley last month meant Gareth Southside’s side had to gain four points from their final two games against Albania and San Marino to win the group.

Friday’s 5-0 victory against Albania gave England three points.

Going into Monday’s game, England were at the top of their group with 23 points, followed by Poland who were in second place with 20 points.
