England welcome Andorra to Wembley on Sunday in what should, at least on paper, prove to be one of the Three Lions most comfortable fixtures in their World Cup qualifying campaign
Goals from Raheem Sterling, Harry Kane, Harry Maguire and Declan Rice were enough to hand England the victory last time out in a disturbing atmosphere after some of England’s stars were subjected to vile racist abuse from sections of the home crowd.
Gareth Southgate’s side are already top of their World Cup qualifying group and sitting comfortably with a five-point cushion over their nearest challengers in Poland and Hungary – who are second and third respectively, the pair both on seven points.
Under normal circumstances, Andorra would be the side touted to finish bottom of the pile, but given the inclusion of FIFA’s lowest-ranked team in San Marino, they may avoid a rock-bottom finish.
The difficulty of the clash alongside England’s fairly comfortable points advantage over the rest of the group presents Southgate with the chance to heavily rotate his side and hand minutes to players who have been otherwise starved of action.
Given Wednesday night’s trip to Poland presents a far sterner test in which the more senior players will be required, Andorra could come up against a number of England’s fringe players.
