England captain, Harry Kane, netted four goals as they thrashed San Marino 10-0 and qualified for the 2022 World Cup.

The Three Lions were ruthless, as they outclassed FIFA’s 210th and lowest-ranked nation.

Fresh from scoring a first-half hat-trick against Albania, Kane repeated the feat inside 39 minutes at Olimpico di Serravalle.

The Tottenham striker became the first England player since Ian Wright in 1993 to score four goals in a single game as he took his international goals tally to 48 – level with Gary Lineker in the all-time scoring charts.

Harry Maguire headed the opening goal for the second successive game before England ran riot in the second half. Emile Smith Rowe and Tyrone Mings opened their international accounts and Bukayo Saka and Tammy Abraham joined them on the congested scoresheet as the Three Lions hit double figures in a competitive match for the first time.

Victory completes an assured World Cup Qualification campaign for England, who finish top of Group I, six points clear of second-place Poland.
