POL vs ENG Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for Poland vs England World Cup Qualifiers Live Score September 9


POL vs ENG Dream11: Poland made it back-to-back victories to solidify their position in second spot in Group I and they will believe they can cause an upset as they take on leaders England. The away side maintained their 100% record with a 4-0 success over Andorra at the weekend in what was a much-changed side with Gareth Southgate resting his first-choice players for this top of the table contest. Poland sit five points behind England and a defeat here will almost certainly secure the visitors’ place at the World Cup. That means that the hosts will need to throw plenty forward and having scored 11 goals in their last two outings, albeit against weak opposition, the Poles will believe they have the quality in front of goal to pose the away side problems which can see them find the back of the net in a game in which both teams should score.

Date: September 9, Thursday
Kick-Off: 12:15 AM (IST)

DEF: Walker, Maguire, Bednarek, Glik
MID: Grealish, Linetty, Rice
FOR: Kane, Lewandowski, Sterling

Likely Winner:

  • In order for Poland to have any real chance of catching England in top spot they need to beat them on home soil on Wednesday. They currently trail England by five points. Paulo Sousa’s side have won both qualifiers during this break with 4-1 and 7-1 wins over Albania and San Marino, respectively. In Sousa’s 10 games in charge of Poland, they have only three games and kept one clean sheet.
  • England have strung together back-to-back 4-0 wins over Hungary and Andorra during this international break. Gareth Southgate’s side know a win here will pretty much secure top spot in Group I. They won the reverse fixture 2-1 on home soil but that was against a Poland side without Robert Lewandowski. They are favourites but another tough game is expected.

Match Odds:

The odds in favour of a England win in this clash is 1.72.
