QPR boss Harry Redknapp has branded San Marino's inclusion in the World Cup qualifying process as a "total farce".

Asked about England's 8-0 win last night, Redknapp told The Sun: "A total farce really. It was a real struggle to watch the match consistently and I bet I wasn’t alone in admitting I was turning over quite a bit to watch Scotland against Wales.

"It was impossible to learn anything from that match. San Marino would not be able to make it in our Conference, let alone the four top divisions.

"What I believe has not changed since the qualifying campaign started — England will beat Montenegro next week and will go on to win what is a very poor group to make it to Brazil. But then they should do.

"Roy Hodgson’s side are a class above the rest and several classes above San Marino. I honestly find it frustrating that the match is allowed to be played."
