England v San Marino: 10 things more likely to happen than Three Lions getting beat - including Scotland winning Euros
San Marino are 250/1 to beat Gareth Southgate’s England side tonight, making victory less likely than Scotland winning the Euros and Jeremy Corbyn becoming the next Prime Minister
England host San Marino at Wembley tonight in their opening World Cup qualifier of the 2022 campaign – and Gareth Southgate’s side are unsurprisingly overwhelming favourites.
England are 1/200 to see off their part-time opponents with 6-0, 7-0 and 8-0 being the most likely scores, all at 5/1, according to Betfair.
San Marino have failed to win a competitive match in their history, and breaking that duck at Wembley tonight would go down as the biggest shocks ever in international football.
Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said: “San Marino beating England tonight would be one of, if not the biggest, ever upset in world football. At odds of 250/1, there’s more of a chance that Scotland will win the EUROs – which at 200/1 isn’t looking extremely unlikely.“The underdogs have only managed to score three goals in five years, so even conceding a goal tonight will be disappointing for Gareth Southgate, but with both teams to score at 11/2 an unlikely San Marino consolation goal isn’t out of the question.”
