Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck scored two goals apiece as England moved to the top of FIFA World Cup qualifying Group H by easing past San Marino at Wembley. 

The Manchester United FC forwards struck within two minutes of each other before and after the break following periods of stubborn resistance from the minnows. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain rounded off the scoring 13 minutes from time with his first senior international goal.
