2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier preview: UEFA Group I – England vs Poland – Wembley Stadium – Wednesday, 31 March 2021, 19:45 hrs. BST
After wins of 5-0 over San Marino and 2-0 against Albania, the Three Lions will want to make it three out of three when they host Poland at the Wembley stadium on Wednesday night, March 31st, for a Group I clash of the WC 2022 qualifiers Eurozone.
The Poles will be arriving at the Wembley on the back of a thrilling 3-3 draw played out against Hungary in their qualifying opener and followed it up with a 3-0 win over minions San Marino.
England form: WLWWW
Poland form: WLLDW
Reece James, Kieran Trippier, Luke Shaw and Ben Chilwell will all compete for positions in the right and left wing-back, respectively. Mason Mount could play deeper alongside Declan Rice or in one side of Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling. In event Mount has to take a more upfront role, Kalvin Phillips or James Ward-Prowse could well start in the midfield.
For Poland, the big blow going into the March 31st clash is the absence of their star striker Robert Lewandowski owing to injury and in fact that will rob the Wembley game of some spectator interest. This leaves Krzysztof Piatek and Arkadiusz Milik to mind things as far as the attack department goes.
England probable starting XI in a 3-4-3 formation: Pope (goal); Maguire, Stones, Walker; Chilwell, Ward-Prowse, Rice, James; Sterling, Kane, Mount;
Poland probable starting XI in a 4-3-1-2 formation: Szczesny (goal); Bereszynski, Bednarek, Gilk, Rybus; Jozwiak, Krychowiak, Moder; Zielinski; Milik, Piatek;
Poland will be England's toughest opponents in the WC 2022 qualifiers so far. But the visitors' attack will be handicapped by the absence of the redoubtable Lewandowski. Nick Pope who has not conceded a goal in any of his six caps for England has a chance to emerge with a clean sheet in this one too.
So, from the looks of it, three points should be there for the taking for hosts England on Wednesday.
