San Marino take on England in the Euro 2016 qualifier clash at the Stadio Olimpico di Serravalle, Serravalle on Saturday, 5 September.

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is at 5pmBST. Live coverage is on ITV 1. Radio commentary of the game will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live.


In the last five meetings between San Marino and England, San Marino has scored only once and conceded 31 goals, out of which 18 have come in the last three encounters. The first leg at Wembley ended in a 5-0 victory for the Three Lions. Roy Hodgson has seen his side win all the qualifiers so far and will be looking to extend his side's record when England face San Marino.

Manchester United star Wayne Rooney is one goal away from equalling Sir Bobby Charlton's record for the country. Two more goals will see him become the leading goal scorer for England.

San Marino ended their 61-match losing streak with a goalless draw against Estonia. They will be hoping for a shock win over England over the weekend and also maintain a clean sheet.

Roy Hodgson: "Jones is a top-quality player. We have great faith in him and we are very happy with him. We think Nathaniel Clyne is a very good player but I would be disappointed if anyone thought that on the basis of a good season with their clubs they can walk in and demand a place."
