    FT: San Marino 0-10 England! England qualify for the FIFA World Cup in prolific style! Kane stole the show with four first-half goals – his second hat-trick before the break in four days – and Smith Rowe and Mings opened their international accounts on a night when Alexander-Arnold also supplied a hat-trick of assists. All of which means England head to the finals with a positive goal difference of 36. Impressive.

    GOAL for England! Ten minutes to go, and England have their tenth! Alexander-Arnold is on fire on the right, clipping in another pinpoint cross to find Saka unmarked in front of goal as San Marino's numerical disadvantage shows. The prodigy nods in!

    GOAL for England! Now Abraham joins the scorers! Alexander-Arnold supplies the goal again from the right, although the Roma striker still has plenty to do, turning neatly and sweeping a low shot into the far corner of the net from the right hand side of the penalty area. There's no let-up from England!

  • 69'
    GOAL for England! Mings scores with an expertly-guided header! Alexander-Arnold measures a cross towards the centre of the penalty area from the free-kick on the right, and the defender arches his neck, changing the trajectory of the ball so that it swings past Benedettini and into the top right-hand corner of his goal. San Marino's misery is compounded after going down to ten men.

    Rossi receives a second yellow card and is sent off.

    GOAL for England! A first England goal for Smith Rowe! Saka clips in a delivery from the right which Abraham deftly back-flicks into the path of the midfielder making his first senior international start tonight, who slots a low finish beyond Benedettini. The visitors are back on the scoresheet after a 16-minute break!

    HT: San Marino 0-6 England! If qualification seemed a straightforward target for England tonight, scoring more in the first half than the five they notched before the break against Albania on Friday was perhaps a little less realistic. That's what they've done, with irrepressible Kane bagging another first-half hat-trick after Maguire powered in the opener – repeating the pattern from Friday – and Fabbri prodded into his own net. San Marino's fans have maintained a boisterous atmosphere and woul

de Inglaterra en el 42'
  • 42'
    GOAL for England! 6-0 here... it's not a joke! Four for Kane! The goal machine emulates Ian Wright's achievement away to San Marino in 1993, setting the defence off balance with a measure of fleet-footed trickery as he rampages inside the penalty area before swerving a low shot into the far right-hand corner of Benedettini's net, again giving the goalkeeper no chance. That's six for the Three Lions!
Penalty scored
Goaaaaal from a penalty!
de Inglaterra en el 39'
  • 39'
    GOAL for England! This penalty is quite the contrast to that first one for Kane. If Benedettini thought diving down the middle might pay dividends, he's given no chance by a thunderous shot high into the top right-hand corner as the goalkeeper looks at it. A second first-half hat-trick in two matches for the skipper!
  • 38'
    D'Addario is penalised for handball and is cautioned by the referee.
  • 32'
    GOAL for England! Kane has a second! Smith Rowe can claim an assist on his debut as England profit on the left flank again, whipping in a cross from just outside the penalty area which the ever-alert Kane meets ahead of Rossi, prodding beyond Benedettini at his far left-hand post. Two in six minutes for England's talisman!

    Bellingham takes aim from a central position outside the penalty area, firing in a low shot which Benedettini descends to stop. The home fans signal their approval.

    GOAL for England! The Three Lions have a second! Saka turns in a flash inside the penalty area on the left, sending in a low shot on the turn which the unfortunate Fabbri diverts beyond his goalkeeper, prodding the ball into the right-hand corner of Benedettini's net with an outstretched boot. 2-0!

    A chance to attack for San Marino, who win a free-kick in the middle of the England half. Golinucci curls a head-height cross into the penalty area, where Maguire nods clear.

    GOAL for England! The visitors are on their way... England are ahead! Foden whips an outswinging corner into the centre of the penalty area from England's left, where Maguire outmuscles Lunadei to power a header beyond Benedettini from close range. Just as he did against Albania on Friday, the defender opens the scoring – and he's done it three minutes earlier this time!
