Preview and odds for Sunday’s World Cup qualifier

England continue their quest to qualify for next winter’s World Cup finals and we have examined the odds to find some England v Andorra betting tips.

Gareth Southgate’s England side have taken maximum points from four games while Andorra have won one of their four fixtures.

Sunday’s match, which takes place at Wembley, kicks off at 5pm BST and is live on ITV.

England v Andorra match odds

England are 1/200 favourites to win after securing four successive victories in Group I.

On Thursday, England cemented their place at the top of the group with a comfortable 4-0 win in Hungary and this clash with Andorra should hold no complications.

The European Championship runners-up took until the 55th-minute before unlocking Hungary, with Raheem Sterling turning in Mason Mount’s cross.

Despite Harry Kane squandering three guilt-edged chances, he nodded in a second before Harry Maguire and Declan Rice finished matters.

England remain top with 12 points from a possible 12. They have also scored 12 goals in those four games and opened up a five-point lead on Poland.

The Tricolours have only won eight games since joining FIFA in 1996 and two of those came against San Marino, whom they beat 2-0 on Thursday.

To their credit, Koldo Alvarez’s side, who have conceded eight goals in their four qualifying games thus far, scored consolation goals against Hungary and the Republic of Ireland before claiming a goalless draw at home to Gibraltar.

Andorra, who will likely employ a five-man defence in a bid to stem the goals, are 16/1 to draw and it is 4/1 for both teams to score at Wembley.

Ildefons Lima, Andorra, England v Andorra betting tips

England v Andorra head-to-head

England have won all of their previous four meetings with Andorra, each game to nil. It is 2/13 for that to happen again.

The Three Lions have scored six and five goals respectively in their two previous clashes on home soil and it is 4/11 that five goals or more are scored in the game and 3/4 for at least six.

Their last meeting in June 2009 saw England win 6-0 with two goals each from Wayne Rooney and Jermain Defoe, with Frank Lampard and Peter Crouch also on the scoresheet.

England netted in both periods in each of their two previous home meetings and it is 2/7 they win both halves in the England v Andorra betting tips.

England v Andorra team news

Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin has withdrawn from the England squad to recover from a broken toe.

Marcus Rashford and Phil Foden are also injured while Patrick Bamford received a maiden senior call-up in Southgate’s squad and could start.

Bamford is 1/3 to score at any time and 2/1 to be the first scorer in the England v Andorra betting tips.

Andorra’s 41-year-old captain Ildefons Lima (pictured above) made his 131st appearance as a substitute against Gibraltar – 23 years after his first cap – and could be in contention to play alongside Marc Vales and Max Llovera in the heart of the defence.

England v Andorra key battles

England’s class should overwhelm the minnows but Southgate’s biggest battle could be to keep his squad happy and he will likely rotate in order to maintain freshness.

Bukayo Saka, who was a real livewire at the Euros, is 4/5 to score at any time.
