  • England have kept clean sheets in 10 of their last 13 matches (all competitions).
  • England's Harry Kane has scored 33 goals in 52 internationals (all competitions).

  • Poland have won 1 of their last 4 away matches (all competitions).

Head to Head


England haven't lost to Poland since 1973, a run of 16 games unbeaten. The Three Lions have won 10 of those matches and drawn six times.

The nations last met in World Cup qualifiers back in 2012 and 2013. England were held to a 1-1 draw in Warsaw before winning 2-0 at home.

England Form


England have recorded comfortable wins over San Marino and Albania to start the qualifying campaign in perfect fashion.

Gareth Southgate gave game time to some his squad members in a 5-0 win over San Marino last Thursday.

James Ward-Prowse, Dominic Calvert-Lewis (two), Raheem Sterling and debutant Ollie Watkins got the goals at Wembley.

It was a little tougher on Sunday, but England were still too good for Albania in Tirana as Harry Kane and Mason Mount goals sealed a 2-0 win.

England Team News


England could go with the same side that started Sunday's victory over Albania, unless Gareth Southgate opts to switch to a back-three.

James Ward-Prowse is a possible starter in midfield in place of Kalvin Phillips, but Marcus Rashford and Bukayo Saka have both been ruled out of the game.

England Squad


Goalkeepers: Dean Henderson, Sam Johnstone, Nick Pope
Defenders: Ben Chilwell, Conor Coady, Eric Dier, Reece James, Harry Maguire, Tyrone Mings, Luke Shaw, John Stones, Kieran Trippier, Kyle Walker
Midfielders: Jude Bellingham, Phil Foden, Jesse Lingard, Mason Mount, Kalvin Phillips, Declan Rice, James Ward-Prowse
Forwards: Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, Ollie Watkins

Poland Form


Poland needed a Robert Lewandowski goal seven minutes from time to earn a point from a 3-3 draw with Hungary in their group opener on Thursday.

Hungary led through Roland Sallai and Adam Szalai goals, before substitutes Krzysztof Piatek and Kamil Jóźwiak levelled for Poland within two minutes of coming on.

Willi Orban put Hungary back in front, only for Lewandowski to pop up with another equaliser for Poland.

It was a routine 3-0 win for Poland over Andorra on Sunday as Lewandowski scored twice before picking up his knee injury. Karol Świderski put the seal on the win.

Poland Team News


Poland were dealt a blow with leading scorer Robert Lewandowski ruled out of the game against England due to a knee injury.
