The current runner-up in Europe, England, visits Poland in their last match in this national team break. With Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling as top leaders, Gareth Southgate’s men seek a key victory to get their ticket to the Qatar 2022 World Cup: They could leave the team of Paulo Manuel Carvalho Sousa, the main threat, to eight points.
The British, who they fell in the penalty shoot-out of the Euro 2020 final at Wembley Stadium, they want to be in the next World Cup event and the three points could leave him with a foot and a half in Qatar 2022, where they hope to do a good job.
The Poles, for their part, failed in the continental event by not being able to access the round of 16: Sweden and Spain deprived him of being among the 16 best European teams. With one of the most established scorers in club football, Robert Lewandowski, Sousa’s team wants to make things difficult for England and fight for the first place, which gives direct access to the World Cup..
Winning England, a historical fact
Poland faces the last day of the national team break with the aim of beating England, current runner-up in Europe. It will not be easy: The British have finished their commitments against Hungary and Andorra with two goals (both 4-0) and have not lost to the Poles since the 1973 World Cup. Since then they have added 11 wins and six draws in official matches.
England, as is obvious, is the great favorite. But he plays at home and against a team in need that seeks the three points so as not to miss the train of the Qatar 2022 World Cup. They were already in Russia 2018 and they do not want to miss the next great international football event.
