Miami Beach, Florida (March 20, 2013) – LiveSoccerTV.com (@LiveSoccerTV) has listed over 15 different channels for the live stream of San Marino vs England. The hosts have conceded 16 goals and taken no point from their first four matches in Group H. Second-placed England will be looking to pile misery upon the hosts come Friday.
The Three Lions were remarkably good against Brazil. Midfielders Jack Wilshere and Frank Lampard stole the show while goalkeeper Joe Hart ruined Ronaldinho’s comeback in the Brazilian team. The home crowd at Wembley had not been treated with such quality from the English national team in a long time.
When it comes to World Cup Qualifying, there is normally one team in each group that is far from competitive enough, making each match seem worst than the previous one. On Friday, San Marino will get a chance to finally score their first goal in the qualification round.
San Marino has conceded 16 goals in four qualification matches while they have not been able to score one. Playing against an England back four that will be without Rio Ferdinand, Gary Cahill and Michael Dawson who are all out with injuries, could give the hosts a better chance of grabbing their first goal, but that still seems very unlikely.
Roy Hodgson will also be without Jack Wilshere who has missed the last few matches for Arsenal with an injury. His absence will give Michael Carrick a chance to step into the midfield to form a partnership with Steven Gerrard in the center of the park.
England in particular will take this tie seriously ahead of their World Cup qualifiers in March. Both the teams bolster some amazing attacking talents but the match may be ultimately decided on which team dominates the midfield.
Following injury to Manchester united man Michael Carrick his fellow teammate Tom Cleverly is expected to replace him in the starting lineup, with Arsenal prodigy Jack Wilshere and captain Steven Gerrard likely to partner him in the middle of the park.
The best thing about this trio is the flexibility they offer, all three players are capable of playing the holding as well as the advanced roles. This gives Roy Hodgson the option of using a 4-3-3 formation.

Not so long ago Pep Guardiola denied the rumours saying that “It would be disrespectful if I were to say something concrete to a club who currently employs a coach.”
Yesterday, Bayern Munich media director Markus Hoerwick scoffed at the rumours and said: “It’s all nonsense, we will first of all talk with Jupp Heynckes, he is our one and only contact."
This led to further rumours about Pep Guardiola joining an English club this summer. The British press spiked its readers' interest by creating a fallacy that Pep has his eyes trained on the Premier League.
After news broke out about Guardiola joining Bayern Munich at the end of the season it was proved that Guardiola coming to England was a media hokum.
