England and Poland will probably face their toughest test of World Cup 2022 qualifying when both sides clash in a Group I fixture on Thursday, September 9. In their respective last matches, Gareth Southgate’s second-string playing XI triumphed over Andorra (4-0). Whereas, Paulo Sousa made eight changes to strike seven goals to storm a comfortable victory on the weekend.
The hosts will have to bring out their A-game in order to put up a fight against the English who are expected to enter the fixture with all guns blazing. However, one of the major talking points about this high-octane clash will be the battle between the star strikers Robert Lewandowski and Harry Kane. The Three Lions’ skipper, after missing a slew of chances, has netted twice in the last one week for his country. Meanwhile, the Polish star has netted three times in his country’s two most recent World Cup Qualifiers and already has six in the campaign.
Both sides had already met in the current qualifying campaign in the March window. The game at Wembley was a closely contested clash with few clear-cut chances, but England managed to win 2-1, courtesy of goals from Kane and Harry Maguire.
