England set a new competitive goalscoring record with their 10-0 mauling of San Marino in Monday’s World Cup 2022 Qualifying clash.
The Three Lions showed no mercy to their beleaguered hosts as Gareth Southgate‘s young guns – as well as four-goal captain Harry Kane – did the business on matchday 10.
England booked their place at the 2022 World Cup after putting 10 unanswered goals past the microstate, with Emile Smith Rowe, Bukayo Saka, Tyrone Mings, Harry Maguire and Tammy Abraham also getting on the scoresheet.
In doing so, England hit double figures in a competitive fixture for the first time in their history, while they scored 10 goals in a game for the first time since beating the USA 10-0 in May 1964.
However, the Three Lions could not break their all-time goalscoring record in a competitive or non-competitive fixture, with their 13-0 thumping of Ireland in 1882 still representing their biggest win.
England finish at the top of Group I with 26 points from a possible 30 – six clear of second-placed Poland following their defeat to Hungary.
