LONDON – It was the most pointless exercise in football — literally. San Marino, the worst European team ever to play international football, came to Wembley in its usual lambs-to-the-slaughter role and lost 5-0 on Thursday.
Roy Hodgson could have fielded his fourth XI and England would still have won. San Marino is that bad. It doesn’t even kick opponents. Victory over San Marino is inevitable, the only question is the margin of defeat inflicted on a bunch of guys who are serial losers. The Wembley win was the expected non-event.
