King of Stats: Noteworthy numbers ahead of England’s San Marino trip
England’s meeting with San Marino is the latest stop on their journey to hopefully be crowned Group H winners.
And the King of Stats has dug out some interesting facts ahead of the pair’s meeting, in the hope of highlighting some profitable betting opportunities on the game.
0 – The amount of goals that San Marino have scored in four group games so far. They have a 100 per cent losing record in Group H, and England can be backed at 1/9 to win to nil.
3 – Wayne Rooney has scored this many goals in qualifying so far, and has notched in the same amount of international matches in succession. He is 7/4 to open the scoring at the Stadio Olimpico, 5/2 to hit a hat-trick, and just 2/7 to outscore the entire opposition.
13 – England’s biggest ever victory came by this margin of goals. They are 80/1 to triumph by 14 strikes or more to set a new record.
35 – This is the amount of minutes it took for the Three Lions to break the deadlock in their last meeting with San Marino. It is 13/2 that the match’s first goal comes between the 30:00 – 39:59 bracket this time.
8 – However, it should be noted that the only time San Marino registered against England, it took them just eight seconds to do so. 8330/1 is the price that the hosts notch within 8.33 seconds again, while it is 29/20 that either team opens the scoring before the 10th minute.
18 – England have found the net this many times in three meetings with San Marino, meaning they punish the minnows six times per match on average. Roy Hodgson’s men are 1/4 to bag four or more goals in the game, and 5/1 to prevail via a 6-0 scoreline.
7 – The record number of different English goalscorers in an international tie, set in a 9-0 demolition of Luxembourg back in 1982. Punters can have 10/1 about that record being broken, whilst it is 8/1 that there are at least six visiting scorers.
5 – The highest amount of goals scored by an England player in one game. It is 12/1 that that record is smashed by any individual here.
