England v. San Marino Preview

San Marino are back in World Cup action with two fixtures this week, a trip to Wembley to face England followed by Moldova at home.

No meeting with England would be complete without a mention of David Gualtieri’s 8 second goal (still the fastest ever World Cup goal) in a 1993 qualifier, which ended 7-1 to England.  The match in Wembley during that campaign finished 5-0 to England which is quite respectable for the Sammarinese and a repeat of that would be something of a feat for them.

Of course this match does give rise to the clichéd bores to go on and on about how San Marino are a joke and shouldn’t be there etc. etc.
