England return to Wembley following a brief stay in Tirana at the weekend, looking to make it nine points from nine, with Poland their next opponents.
Two routine wins from their first two games also saw the Three Lions keep back-to-back clean sheets, something they have become accustomed to when qualifying for major tournaments. In their last WCQ section, they conceded just three goals in ten games, and they kept five clean sheets in eight when reaching the Euro 2020 finals.
News broke on Monday morning that Poland’s star man Robert Lewandowski will miss the fixture after getting injured against Andorra, putting a huge dent in any chance they think they will have had of leaving Wembley with a result. Even so, against bigger sides, with or without Lewandowski, they have been poor in recent years. They exited the World Cup at the group stage and only managed one goal in four games against Italy and the Netherlands in the last Nations League.
England have not lost to the Poles since their first meeting in 1973, stretching back 17 head-to-heads, and they are unbeaten in their last 23 WCQ qualifiers. Our tip is for them to beat Poland to nil at Wembley, priced at 7/5.
