England vs Poland live stream: How to watch World Cup qualifier online and on TV tonight

England play their third qualifier of the international break on Wednesday, as they host Poland at Wembley.

Gareth Southgate’s men have made a good start as they bid to reach the 2022 World Cup, taking six points from two games after a routine thrashing of San Marino and a more professional win on the road in Albania. Poland themselves dropped points late on in their first game, drawing 3-3 in Hungary, before an easy 3-0 win over Andorra last time out to leave them second, behind the Three Lions.

There will not be too many who don’t expect England to top the group at the end of qualifying, and a victory here would go a long way towards ensuring that will be the case, putting them five points ahead of their likely main challengers. Southgate’s side have kept clean sheets in each of their last three matches.

The Poles will be without star forward Robert Lewandowski, a big blow to their hopes of causing an upset, but in the likes of Arek Milik and Piotr Zielinski, they still have the players to trouble England on their day.
