Follow all the action as England welcome Poland to Wembley in tonight’s crucial World Cup qualifier.

Gareth Southgate’s side surged to a 5-0 victory against San Marino in the first outing of their campaign before a comfortable 2-0 win against Albania last weekend. Tonight’s match will act as a final audition for players hoping to secure their places at the Euros this summer, with the head coach admitting his first team is already close to being finalised.

England are the only side in Group I to have won both of their opening two matches as the Three Lions attempt to avoid any slip-ups on the road to Qatar 2022, but Poland does represent a significant step up in opposition, even without star striker Robert Lewandowski, who has been ruled out for four weeks due to a knee injury. “It’s the last chance to put on a performance,” Declan Rice said ahead of tonight’s game. “No disrespect to San Marino and Albania but it will be a real step up and closer to the opposition we’ll be facing in the Euros. It’s a real chance to make a statement.” Follow all the action live below:
