The last two England games have seen the Three Lions claim two 4-0 victories, away in Hungary and then at home against Andorra, making it five wins from five in their Group I qualifiers.
However, Poland represents arguably their biggest test of the qualifying campaign – with a certain Robert Lewandowski waiting for Harry Maguire & Co.
