San Marino – Northern Ireland Preview: News, Form, and Potential Lineups
Here you can find all the latest information on both teams ahead of their duel, including the possible San Marino vs Northern Ireland lineups:
There isn't really much to say about San Marino, the team with the first FIFA ranking at the moment. This is a national team that still waits for a win in an official game, other than their only win in a friendly match against Lichtenstein. So, their only goal in the 2024 Euro Qualifiers is to be as competitive as possible and avoid too many heavy defeats.
The team is pretty much in full strength as they don't have any major fitness or injury concerns at the moment.
San Marino Predicted Lineup:
Benedettini – Cevoli, Grandoni, Palazzi, Tosi, D'Addario – Capicchioni, Golinucci, Mularoni – Vitaioli, Rinaldi
After their first-ever appearance at Euro Championships back in 2016, in which they even managed to get out of group stages, Northern Ireland has seemingly been in freefall ever since. Their latest attempt to reach a major competition was obviously unsuccessful as they missed World Cup in Qatar this year and their performances in Nations League were unconvincing as the team barely avoided relegation to Division D of the competition.
When it comes to team news, Norther Ireland will miss a few starters, such as Jonny Evens and Stuart Dallas, but they shouldn't be missed too much in this game.
Northern Ireland Predicted Lineup:
Peacock-Farrell – Bradley, Ballard, Cathcart, Lewis – Whyte, McNair, Saville, McMenamin – Charles, Magennis
Teams commonly announce their starting lineups one hour before kickoff.
Player to Watch: Dion Charles
It's hard to pick a player to watch for this game since Northern Ireland is bound to experiment a bit in this game, but also many of their players can shine against an opponent like San Marino.
With that in mind, we decided to go with Dion Charles, the who has been in good form this season with Bolton in League One. However, the forward is still waiting for his first goal for the national team despite appearing in 13 games so far. So, San Marino might be just the opponent for Charles to finally score his maiden goal for Northern Ireland.
