England couldn't have asked for a softer start for their bid to reach next year's tournament in Qatar as they face the worst-ranked team in FIFA's world rankings. San Marino have famously never won a competitive football match, with the nation's single victory coming with a 1–0 win over Liechtenstein in a friendly match back in 2004.

While Franco Varrella's side managed to pick up a couple of points in their Nations League campaign after holding Gibraltar and Liechtenstein to goalless draws, they'll be playing for little more than pride here and a score line under five goals will likely be seen as a major achievement for the micro state.

With Robert Lewandowski's Poland coming up, there are far bigger challenges ahead for England, but Southgate will be hoping for a professional performance from his players here as he looks to build confidence and perhaps experiment with his line up. Aston Villa striker Ollie Watkins could make his first start for his country, while the recalled Jesse Lingard will be looking to replicate his scintillating West Ham form on the international stage.

Follow our guide below for all the ways to watch England vs San Marino online and get a World Cup 2022 qualifier wherever you are right now.

Can I live stream England vs San Marino in Canada?

With England up against the worst team in the world, the potential for an avalanche of goals hasn't unfortunately tempted and Canadian broadcaster to offer live coverage of this match.

We don't see much alternative other than to grab a VPN as discussed above and try and catch the coverage from somewhere else in the world (although you'll likely need credit card details in your country of choice).

Its a similar story for Kiwis - live coverage of World Cup qualifiers in New Zealand comes courtesy of Sky Sport, but unfortunately the broadcaster has opted to show Germany vs Iceland and Scotland vs Austria rather than this unevenly balanced clash at Wembley.

If you're desperate to watch the inevitable goal fest, then go get  a VPN as discussed above and try and catch the coverage from somewhere else in the world.
