Led by goal scoring sensation Robert Lewandowski, Poland currently sit second in the pool on ten points, five points behind England. Paulo Sousa's side have scored 11 goals from their last two games, racking up seven in their most recent fixture against San Marino. However, that match also saw the microstate minnows chalk up their first World Cup Qualifying goal in eight years.

A defeat here for the hosts could see them fall out of the crucial top two in the group, with surprise package Albania - who are just one point behind the Poles - looking to pounce.

Having rotated his side on Sunday, England boss Southgate looks likely to revert back to a more familiar line-up with the likes of Harry Kane, Declan Rice, Raheem Sterling and Jack Grealish all set to return to the starting 11.
