Looking to extend on what has been a real qualifying romp this week, England will see off their September international fixtures when they make the trip to Poland on Wednesday night.
Poland
Starting with the hosts, while Poland might have been left frustrated by San Marino breaching their defence over the weekend, they did pick up what could turn out to be a crucial victory. Eventually storming their way to what was a routine victory against the Group I whipping boys, new boss Paulo Sousa did see his side storm their way to a 7-1 win on foreign soil. Only managing to muster a single point at the summer’s European Championships, a run highlighted by a shock 2-1 defeat against Slovakia, the one-time Leicester manager has seen his side enjoy a recent September boost. Finding a way to build off of their 4-1 win against Albania earlier in the month, the Eagles are still sat in pole position to book their spot at next year’s World Cup finals. If Poland are to pick up what would be a shock victory on Wednesday, Sousa will be calling on attacking talisman Robert Lewandowski to spearhead their charge. Bagging himself a brace against San Marino over the weekend, the Bayern Munich superstar has already recorded 10 goals for club and country since opening the 2021/22 campaign.

Team News

Given a break against San Marino over the weekend, the duo of Jan Bednarek and Kamil Glik should make their return to Poland’s starting XI on Wednesday night.

Bagging a quickfire hat-trick last time out, Adam Buksa could join attacking talisman Robert Lewandowski up top.
England
As for the visitors, although England might have made the decision to make 11 changes when they welcomed Andorra to Wembley on Sunday evening, Gareth Southgate’s side put in what was a routine display on home soil. With Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard helping himself to a brace, the Three Lions picked up a thumping 4-0 win and the mood in their camp should be at a high. Still looking to fully recover from their heartbreaking defeat at the hands of Italy over the summer, the Whites have enjoyed a real qualifying romp this year. All but securing their spot at next year’s World Cup finals and finding a way to build off of their controversial 4-0 win out in Hungary last week, Southgate’s men have won all five of their Group I contests. Holding a squad that is filled with superstars, England should also be boosted by their most recent meeting against Wednesday’s hosts. When they welcomed Poland to Wembley back in March, the Three Lions picked up what was a hard-fought 2-1 win on home soil.

Team News

Making XI changes against Andorra over the weekend, Gareth Southgate is expected to once again make a host of alterations for Wednesday’s trip to Poland.

Coming off of the bench and finding the net at Wembley, Tottenham ace and skipper Harry Kane should make his return to England’s starting XI here.
Key Factors to Consider

When the two nations last faced off at Wembley back in March, England picked up a 2-1 victory.
Since opening September’s international fixtures, England have picked up back-to-back 4-0 wins against Hungary and Andorra.
Including a brace against San Marino over the weekend, Robert Lewandowski has scored 10 goals for club and country since opening the 2021/22 campaign.
All five of Poland’s Group I matchups this year have seen over 2.5 goals by the final whistle.
England are remarkably unbeaten in each of their last 26 straight World Cup qualifying matchups.

Conclusion

Managing to put their summer heartbreak behind them over the past week, England should be confident of extending on their qualifying romp out in Poland here. While the Eagles might have managed to cruise their way to what was a routine 7-1 win against whipping boys San Marino, they will know that they face a stern step up in class on Wednesday night. With the Three Lions landing back-to-back 4-0 wins against Hungary and Andorra since returning to international duties, Gareth Southgate’s side are storming their way to next year’s World Cup finals. Picking up that 2-1 win when they welcomed Poland to Wembley back in March, we’re backing a similar away win for the Group I heavyweights in midweek.
