FIFA World Cup 2022 Qualifiers England vs Poland: ENG vs POL: England beats Poland 2-1 to continue winning streak in Group I.
Harry Maguire smashed home a late winner as England labored to a 2-1 victory over Poland in World Cup qualifying on Wednesday after an error by John Stones nearly cost the hosts all three points.
Maguire swiveled and smashed home a knock-down from a corner in the 85th minute to maintain England’s perfect start to their Group I campaign.
England had dominated the majority of the match at Wembley, taking the lead after 19 minutes when Harry Kane fired home from the penalty spot. Things turned sour for Gareth Southgate’s side, however, when Stones allowed Jakub Moder to level in the second half.
Stones dawdled on the ball and Poland midfielder Moder robbed him of possession before firing home after a quick exchange of passes.
The win lifted England to nine points from three games, two ahead of Hungary in second with Poland on four points.
Poland, shorn of their main attacking threat with Bayern Munich’s striker Robert Lewandowski ruled out by a knee injury, was never likely to tear into England and their more defensive approach frustrated the hosts in the early stages.

England 2-1 Poland
It still remains to be seen if or not Lewandowski will be passed fit for this top-of-the-table encounter, but his adversary Kane is firing on all cylinders and ready to inspire England to yet another win on home soil.
The Three Lions cannot expect to cruise to victory at Wembley like they did against San Marino, and a change in formation from Southgate could have a big impact on the hosts’ attacking prowess, but we are confident in England’s ability to get the job done and maintain their perfect start to qualification.
