Can Poland get revenge for their defeat at Wembley back in March?

That night, Harry Kane’s penalty put England in front only for Poland to pounce on some slack defending and equalise through Jakub Moder.

But, with just five minutes to play, England’s two centre-back combined with John Stones knocking it down for Harry Maguire to lash home.

So 2-1 it finished and that result is a kyt reason why there’s a big gap at the top of Group I.

Poland are the second seeds in this section and currently occupy second place.

On Sunday night, the Eagles scored seven in a competitive away game for the first time since 2014, demolishing San Marino 7-1 in Serravalle.

Robert Lewandowski scored twice early with Karol Świderski and Karol Linetty netting while Adam Buksa bagged a surprise hat-trick, two of which came deep into stoppage time.

That made it back-to-back wins for the White and Reds this month after hammering Albania 4-1 on Thursday.

In total, Paulo Sousa’s side have ten points; their only slip-ups came in a thrilling 3-3 draw in Hungary and that aforementioned defeat in London.

But, they are currently second, five points behind England, but one above Albania and three clear of Hungary.

Thus, Poland will be confident of at least a play-off place, in which the three successful teams will have to win two single-elimination ties.

As a nation, they’ve qualified for eight World Cup Finals, only 13 European nations have more, including appearing at Russia 2018.

That ended their 12-year exile from the World Cup but they have qualified for the last four Euros, reaching the quarter-finals in 2016.

But, this summer, Poland went out in the group phase, drawing with Spain but losing to both Slovakia and Sweden in Saint Petersburg.

This means they’ve only won three of their last 17 matches at major tournaments.

But, right now, their priority once again is just to be at the tournament.

This game won’t be easy for England as the hosts have only lost three of their last 19 competitive games on home soil.

Only Netherlands, Portugal and Italy, all in the Nations League, have left Poland victorious since 2013.

Their last home qualifying defeat came at the hands of Ukraine eight years ago.

Will England once again assert their authority on Group I at Stadion Narodowy or will it be a famous night for the home fans?

Will England win in Warsaw?

England meanwhile are running away with qualifying Group I.

On Saturday, in front of over 65,000 supporters, the Three Lions swatted aside Andorra at Wembley.

Jesse Lingard opened the scoring and that was actually the only goal until a late flurry in the final quarter of an hour.

Harry Kane smashed home a penalty before a curler from Lingard and a header from birthday boy Bukayo Saka secured the 4-0 victory.

This means Gareth Southgate’s side now have 15 points out of a possible 15 and are five points clear of their nearest challengers who are Poland.

Six nights ago, the Euro 2020 runners-up took a big step towards Qatar 2022, demolishing Hungary 4-0 at Puskás Aréna.

Now, they face the second of two tough away games and this one in Warsaw should provide an even sterner examination of their credentials.

Of course, England reached the final of the European Championships so have only lost four of their last 31 competitive matches (excluding shootouts).

In terms of European Qualifiers, England have won 50 of their last 61 fixtures, losing just twice since 2007.

This includes two meetings with Poland in World Cup 2014 qualification.

Back then, they drew 1-1 in Warsaw before a 2-0 victory at Wembley that secured their place in Brazil.

Thrice before England have qualified for a tournament with a 100% record.

They won three out of three en route to World Cups 1950 and 1954 and ten out of ten to get to Euro 2016.

Will Southgate’s side win again in this group and all but book their tickets to Qatar?

Poland v Slovakia - UEFA Euro 2020: Group E

Paulo Sousa only took over as Head Coach in March after Jerzy Brzęczek was sacked following a below par performance in the Nations League.

However, Sousa is now under pressure to deliver World Cup qualification following Euro 2020 or he too could be out the door.

Goalkeeper has been a hotly-contested spot in this side for about a decade now.

But, following Łukasz Fabiański’s retirement from international football, Wojciech Szczęsny is the undisputed first-choice.

To put this into context, before this international window, both had exactly 56 caps to their name.

In defence, Sousa has favoured a back three since first taking charge earlier this year.

He changed his entire back three on Sunday but Thursday’s trio will return.

This features Southampton’s Jan Bednarek, Bartosz Bereszyński and Kamil Glik who’ll move onto 88 caps, looking to become the fifth Pole to reach 100+.

Another English-based player, Kamil Jóźwiak of Derby County, could return at wing-back.

In midfield though, Leeds United’s Mateusz Klich has been ruled out due to a positive Covid-19 test.

So, Brighton & Hove Albion’s Jakub Moder will start alongside Grzegorz Krychowiak with Karol Linetty slightly further forward.

Up front, a key motivation behind going with a back three is it allows Sousa to use a front two.

However, the two leading candidates to be the assistant, Arkadiusz Milik and Krzysztof Piątek, are both injured.

So, after his hat-trick in San Marino, Adam Buksa of New England Revolution could keep his place with Karol Świderski missing out.

Buksa only made his international debut last week but has now scored four times in just two caps.

Whoever it is, their job is to be the foil for Robert Lewandowski.

The Bayern Munich centre-forward now has 72 international goals to his name, yielded from only 124 caps.

46 of these have come in European Qualifiers with only Cristiano Ronaldo (64) have scored more in the competition’s 87 year history.

Can Lewandowski fire his nation to a famous win over England?

England team news vs Poland

Poland vs England betting tips: World Cup qualifier preview, predictions and odds

Gareth Southgate named his strongest XI for Thursday’s win in Budapest and then made 11 changes on Sunday.

Thus, it’s not farfetched to assume that he’ll make 11 changes again, reverting to the side that hammered Hungary.

Sam Johnstone won just his second cap in goal against Andorra but Jordan Pickford will return for this one.

At the back, despite stiff competition, Kyle Walker is the first-choice right-back.

Reece James deputised at Wembley with Kieran Tripper on the left and Trent Alexander-Arnold trialled in midfield, for 45 minutes at least.

Harry Maguire, John Stones and Luke Shaw will all also return at the back.

Tyrone Mings’ yellow card at the weekend means he is suspended anyway so won’t make the trip east.

In midfield, the Alexander-Arnold experiment was, at best, inconclusive so that might not be seen again for a while.

Jordan Henderson and Jude Bellingham were alongside and the 18 year old put in another eye-catching performance.

But, the tried and trusted Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips duo will return for this tough fixture.

Further forward, the attacking quartet that started in Budapest was, particularly in the second half, devastating.

Jack Grealish was, arguably, a surprise inclusion alongside Mason Mount and Raheem Sterling but that £100 million man certainly staked a claim.

Sunday’s scorers Bukayo Saka and Jesse Lingard will be back on the bench; Jadon Sancho has withdrawn from the squad due to injury.

Lingard’s brace against Andorra were his first England goals since November 2018.

He has played just 357 minutes for Manchester United since the pandemic hit the UK, all be it with an outstanding loan spell at West Ham in this period.

In attack, Harry Kane has now scored in 14 successive European Qualifiers, last failing to do so against Slovakia four years and four days ago.

The captain will return here with debutant Patrick Bamford back in reserve.

Will England leave Stadion Narodowy eight points clear of Poland?
