To cut to the chase, San Marino won’t cause England problems as they remain the archetypal international football minnows.

The official population of San Marino is 33,938 which is comparable to the capacity of Derby County’s Pride Park.

In fact, there are 17 stadiums in England alone that have a larger capacity than San Marino’s entire population.

Thus, it shouldn’t be a surprise that San Marino can’t compete but that’s exactly what they continue to do.

On Friday night, la Serenissima were beaten 4-0 by Hungary at Puskás Aréna.

This means they’ve now lost all nine World Cup 2022 qualifiers, scoring just once and conceding 36.

Their sole goal, scored by Nicola Nanni, came in a 7-1 defeat by Poland, pouncing on a defensive mix up.

So, San Marino have still never won a competitive match, losing 157 and drawing the other five.

In their history, they’ve conceded a staggering 686 goals in 151 qualification fixtures.

Two of their five draws did come in 2020, all be it in UEFA Nations League D.

They held Liechtenstein to a goalless draw in Vaduz before managing the same against Gibraltar at home 12 months ago.

This didn’t prevent them from finishing bottom of their Nations League group in the competition’s bottom-tier.

Those draws did, momentarily, lift them off the FIFA World Rankings.

But, San Marino are back down in 210th, out of 210.

The five teams directly above them, in order, are Turks and Caicos Islands, Guam, U.S. Virgin Islands, British Virgin Islands and Anguilla.

In short, England and San Marino are from a different planets and anything other than an emphatic away victory in Serravalle would be a major shock.

Will England finish 2021 with a comfortable win?

England though travel to San Marino still needing a result but they did take a gigantic step towards Qatar 2022 on Friday night.

On matchday nine, the Three Lions absolutely demolished Albania 5-0 at Wembley with all the goals coming in a frantic first half.

Harry Maguire nodded home a ninth minute opener with Jordan Henderson slaloming through to score his second England goal.

But the story was Harry Kane who scored his fourth England hat-trick, and a perfect hat-trick at that.

The third of his trio, coming in first half stoppage time, was the most eye-catching.

A bicycle-kick usually only scene in Hollywood films; it was essentially a carbon-copy of Pelé’s goal in Escape to Victory.

This 5-0 drubbing maintain’s England’s three-point advantage at the top of Group I with Poland, as would’ve been expected, their nearest challengers.

Most would’ve expected qualification to be wrapped up by now but those 1-1 draws in Warsaw and at home to Hungary mean it isn’t settled coming into this final matchday.

Nevertheless, the only way England can relinquish top spot is by losing in San Marino, unlikely already, Poland beat Hungary at home and there’s a six-goal swing.

There should be nothing for Gareth Southgate’s side to worry about.

Back on matchday one, England beat San Marino 5-0 at Wembley meaning they’ve now scored 42 and conceded just one in seven meetings.

Famously, the Three Lions’ hopes of USA ’94 qualification ended in against San Marino due to Netherlands’ win in Poznań simultaneously.

This time, their destiny is in their own hands and World Cup 2022 qualification should be secured in Serravalle.

All of Franco Varrella’s squad in the domestic Campionato Sammarinese di Calcio or in Italy’s Serie C or D.

For context, the top-flight in San Marino is ranked the weakest league in Europe by UEFA’s coefficient.

One of the Serie C based players is goalkeeper Elia Benedettini who’s conceded 67 goals in his international career but made 104 saves.

In the last three matches, San Marino have moved away from their usual 5-3-2 and used a far more bold 4-4-2.

Of course, this hasn’t affected the results very much.

Andrea Grandoni hobbled off on Friday night in Budapest so could be replaced by Alessandro D’Addario at left-back.

Experienced duo Davide Simoncini, who is the captain, and Mirko Palazzi are both not in the squad, making their back-line even weaker.

In attack, their only goal of this campaign was scored by Nicola Nanni in that 7-1 drubbing by Poland.

He’s the joint-top scorer in the squad with one, level with David Tomassini and Matteo Vitaioli.

Will any of the players in light blue score a famous one against Euro 2020 runners-up England?

As for the visitors, Gareth Southgate made 11 changes for the reverse fixture and for both games against fellow minnows Andorra.

So, despite qualification theoretically being on the line, expected a much-changed XI compared to Friday.

This theory was emphasised on Sunday morning when it was confirmed that five players would not make the trip.

These are Jordan Henderson, Jack Grealish, Raheem Sterling, Mason Mount and Luke Shaw for a variety of fitness related reasons.

So, there could be an international debutant in goal with Aaron Ramsdale surely having earned his first senior cap.

The 23 year old has excelled at Arsenal this season; he’s yet to lose a game in the Gunners’ goal, saving 78.8% of the 33 shots he’s faced.

In defence, Southgate, controversially, switched to a 3-4-3 on Friday night but this allowed the wing-backs to destroy Albania.

Although, here, there is no need for three centre-backs so Conor Coady could partner Tyrone Mings.

Ben Chilwell will keep his place on the left, with Luke Shaw unavailable, but Trent Alexander-Arnold will come in for Reece James on the other side.

In midfield, Jude Bellingham’s form for Borussia Dortmund means a clamour for him to see more action is building ahead of the World Cup.

After Declan Rice withdrew due to illness, Jordan Henderson partnered Kalvin Phillips but surely Bellingham will get a well-deserved opportunity.

Conor Gallagher was drafted into the squad at the weekend so could make his senior debut off the bench.

Further forward, with Mason Mount out, Emile Smith Rowe could get his first start after making his senior debut on Friday.

He’s scored in each of Arsenal’s last three Premier League games.

Club teammate Bukayo Saka come also come, into the XI in place of Raheem Sterling, with Phil Foden keeping his place on the left.

In attack, after his hat-trick on Friday night, Harry Kane now has 44 England goals, pulling level with the late-great Jimmy Greaves.

He’s now just four behind Gary Lineker, five behind Sir Robert Charlton and nine adrift Wayne Rooney’s record of 53.

Given that Kane has now scored 12 England goals in 2021 alone, he’s on course to break Rooney’s record at Qatar 2022.

However, Kane may have to wait for more goals from the bench with Tammy Abraham leading the line.

Abraham scored four times in his first eight appearances for Roma but his goal last weekend and Venezia ended a streak eight games without a goal.

Will he add to his two England goals in a resounding victory here?
