Sports Innovation previews the World Cup Qualifier between England and Andorra and offers team stats and betting tips with the latest odds.
For the first time since the Euro 2020 final, England step foot onto the Wembley turf for a 2022 World Cup qualifier against Andorra on Sunday evening.
A 4-0 win over Hungary last week maintained England’s 100% record in Group I. The Three Lions have made easy work of their opponents, scoring 13 goals and conceding just once in four games. They currently hold a five-point lead at the top of the table with a maximum of 12 points.
For Andorra, meanwhile, it’s almost the complete opposite. Upon losing their first three games, the Tricolours struck points at the fourth attempt in a 2-0 win over San Marino last week. The three points moved them up to fifth place in Group I, albeit four points adrift from a World Cup play-off spot for Qatar.
Let’s have a look at the form of both sides and the stats from their previous encounters to come up with a reasonable betting prediction.

England vs Andorra Fixture History
The last match between England and Andorra was a World Cup match back on 10 June 2009 and saw the Three Lions claim a 6-0 victory. Look for a win in the betting market here as a stalemate seems highly unlikely. They haven’t played out a single draw in their last 4 matches in the World Cup.
England will hope Harry Kane can find the back of the net once again. The Three Lions captain has scored 6 goals in his last 6 appearances. Raheem Sterling and Harry Maguire could also be worth a tilt. As for Andorra, Marc Vales represents their best hope in the goalscorer market based on recent stats.
