San Marino v England Tips | 5th September 2015 | ITV1

SO, how many goals will England score on Saturday? Chris Graham (@chrisgraham79) gives us his view.

San Marino v England | Saturday 17:00 | ITV1

Victory here for England would mean they could wrap up the group on Tuesday night against Switzerland. Victory here, is of course assured. Only Gibraltar sit below San Marino in the UEFA rankings and defeats are as inevitable as the sun rising in the morning.

To be fair, San Marino did achieve a real milestone earlier in this group when they drew 0-0 at home to Estonia. That was against an Estonia side who beat Slovenia on Matchday 1 in this group.

But let’s not get silly and suggest there’s anything vaguely interesting about this tie. There’s not. England will win comfortably, the puzzle is trying to figure out how many they’ll win by.

It was 5-0 in their last two home games against San Marino but 8-0 on their last trip here in 2013. Earlier in the group Switzerland scored four here, Lithuania two and of course Estonia drew a blank.

In the previous campaign San Marino suffered two 8-0 home losses to England and Ukraine and conceded six and five against Montenegro and Poland respectively.

England are playing a fringe team on Saturday with Jamie Vardy, Jonjo Shelvey and John Stones lined up to start. Surely these players will be hungry to make their mark with the national team jersey fitted to their chest.

The bookmakers have the Over/Under line pitched at around 5.5 goals which I think is spot on. There are signs that San Marino have slightly improved in this campaign (no home defeat more than four and a draw against Estonia) so maybe England won’t run riot here.

I’ll back a 5-0 and 6-0 win for England at 6/1 with Skybet. That pays 5/2 if one of them oblige.

    Whenever this bizarrely quite regular game comes about the only decision I tend to make is if to back the 5-0 or 6-0 to England as well lol
