With their 10-0 thrashing of San Marino in Monday’s World Cup 2022 Qualifying match, England set a new competitive goalscoring record.

On matchday 10, Gareth Southgate’s young guns – including four-goal captain Harry Kane – showed no mercy to their embattled hosts, as the Three Lions showed no mercy to their beleaguered hosts.

England qualified for the 2022 World Cup after scoring ten goals in a row against the microstate, with Emile Smith Rowe, Bukayo Saka, Tyrone Mings, Harry Maguire, and Tammy Abraham all scoring.

For the first time in their history, England scored double figures in a competitive match, and they scored ten goals in a game for the first time since beating the USA 10-0 in May 1964.

The Three Lions, however, were unable to break their all-time goalscoring record in a competitive or non-competitive match, with their 13-0 thrashing of Ireland in 1882 still standing as their best victory.

Following Poland’s defeat against Hungary, England finished first in Group I with 26 points out of a potential 30 – six points ahead of second-placed Poles.
