England remain two points behind Montenegro at the top of FIFA World Cup qualifying Group H after an emphatic victory against San Marino.

While England were scoring eight in a game for the first time since overwhelming Turkey in October 1987, the leaders were triumphing in Moldova, meaning the standings remain the same ahead of the meeting of the top two in Podgorica on Tuesday.
