International week is upon us which means there’ll be plenty of bobbins teams performing in competitive action on Friday night including San Marino, Cyprus and Ireland.
The boys in green face a tough test as Germany come to the Aviva but the Padcast panel are confident that Trap’s army can come away with a result (well Ciaran is anyway). We discuss whether Ireland have any chance of pulling out a result against one of the world’s best sides and we play a game called ‘decipher what Marco Tardelli is saying’.
The Daily Telegraph’s Mark Ogden joins the Padcast to discuss how many England are going to thump past San Marino. Mark is going for a very optimistic nine, and has a feeling Wayne Rooney will bang in a few.
San Marino really are the worst team in the world. It’s like asking Manchester United to play someone from the seventh tier of English football, they really are minnows.
There’s a lot of people in the England squad with points to prove and to be blunt, San Marino are rubbish. The three lions will get eight or nine on Friday night.
The Padcast lads take a look elsewhere through the 27 fixtures and pick out some of the best bets ahead of this round of qualifiers including a tasty 10/1 double and for favourite backers there a barmy odds-on sixfold.
