By db-admin – Spain and England have different fates in the inaugural match of the 2022 European Zone World Cup Qualification, Friday (26/3/2021).

England hosted San Marino at Wembley Stadium and won 5-0 through two goals from Dominic Calvert-Lewin (21′, 53′), Raheem Sterling (31′), Ollie Watkins (83′) and James Ward-Prowse (14′).

England is too dominant with 85 percent possession of the ball, 32 attempted kicks and 15 shots on target against their opponents. The difference in quality and experience between the two teams is a big gap that determines the final result of the match.
