Live streaming for the World Cup 2014 qualifier between England and Poland.
Tip: Poland +1.75 on AH @ 1.90
The FA have allocated 18,000 tickets to be sold to Polish fans for this game which will give them a huge boost. It will certainly add to the occasion which is what they wanted but for the hosts it will make what would be a tough game a lot tougher.
I held some concern over England going into the last game but they won it comfortably in the end. This is a whole lot tougher though. They are coming up against Poland who have a few more dangerous players than Montenegro. Poland are already out but they have nothing to lose which makes them very dangerous. They will put out a strong side with key man upfront in Lewandowski and will attack England.
If Poland do come here to have a go and attack, that may play into England’s hands a little more. They usually have to work hard to break teams down here but the Poles, who are vulnerable at the back, could leave space for England’s pacey players to exploit.

England will be looking for a victory to secure their passage into the World Cup finals as group winners and therefore avoiding having to overcome a potentially tricky play-off tie.
Ashley Cole will be missing from the squad because of a rib injury. The 32-year-old missed Friday’s victory over Montenegro and has failed to recover in time.
Manchester United team-mates Chris Smalling and Phil Jones are vying to replace suspended Tottenham defender Kyle Walker at right-back.
Winger Andros Townsend, 22, is likely to be retained on the right by manager Roy Hodgson following his goal-scoring debut against Montengro.
Poland will be without injured defender Lukasz Piszczek, but coach Waldemar Fornalik, who could be in charge for the last time, is more concerned about his side’s goalscoring problem.
