Qatar is reached by sweeping
It wasn’t the biggest beating in San Marino history (That milestone is held by Germany, who made a 0-13 in 2006); it wasn’t the biggest win in England history either (0-13 to the ‘Island of Ireland’ in 1882). But there were two ‘little hands’ who grabbed the helm heading for Qatar 2022. The English superiority was so overwhelming that it verged on insulting. And Kane, like a shark in a fish tank, made a poker in 15 minutes to equalize Lineker (48) and get within five of Rooney, highest historical scorer of the Three lions.
The proclamation gave it Maguire with a header at 5 minutes: at mercy and point blank. Simple. And the second, although Saka wanted to award it, it was an own goal, as the central deflected his shot, making the goalkeeper’s stretch useless. They still popped the popcorn in the microwaves and England I was already winning 0-2. They arrived in time for the recital of Kane, who in a quarter of an hour made a poker: two penalties, one with the warm and another after getting almost walking to the kitchen.
Special mention for the most absurd penalty in football history: Foden volleyed, the ball went out anyway, but the referee galloped to VAR because, supposedly, leather grazed on a gamer’s nail. In the image it was not even clearly appreciated that he was hit, but the referee indicated maximum penalty and took out a card. Worth to watch; surreal.
After the restart they scored Smith-Rowe, shooting a high heel from Abraham and Mings, finishing in foreshortening a foul. The score, with the 0-8, made believe in the ten. And even more so when Abraham signed the ninth with a cross volley. “We want the tenth!” Shouted the English stands. They weren’t talking about the lottery. And his boys, who got the message, They gave it to him, the work of Saka (this yes, fully yours).
Two ‘handymen’ and the 2022 World Cup. A plush from a movie. Terrifying genre. And Kane’s goal scorer, who sooner or later will be his country’s all-time top scorer. It’s a matter of time.
England thrashed: Qatar is devastated.
