Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time, and team news for TONIGHT’S World Cup 2022 qualifier


GOOD EVENING

And welcome to the live blog for England vs San Marino!

Gareth Southgate’s men begin the road to the 2022 Qatar World Cup against European minnows San Marino.

The Three Lions are joined in group I by Poland, Hungary, Albania, Andorra and tonight’s opponents San Marino.

England’s biggest threats will be Poland, who have the best No9 in the world right now, Robert Lewandowski.

And Hungary, who have a wonderkid by the name of Dominik Szoboszlai who plays for Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig.

San Marino will not be a threat. It’s more about pride for them and getting a goal could reduce some to tears.

In terms of team news, England are without some familiar faces.

Jack Grealish, Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford are all out with an injury, possibly handing Ollie Watkins a debut start.

Bukayo Saka and Kyle Walker will also miss out.

Southgate could decide to let his creative players loose and Phil Foden could be in line to start.

And for San Marino, it’s hard to give some definite news as their team is a mixture of full-time and part-time footballers!

Only three players have ever found the back of the net for San Marino – Matteo Vitaioli, Filippo Berardi and Mirko Palazzi – and all three could start at Wembley.

The teamsheets are due to be released in half an hour so don’t go anywhere!
