Missing Players and team news:




England right-back Kyle Walker shook off an injury in time to start against Albania, but Bukayo Saka and Marcus Rashford have been ruled out of this game, while Nick Pope is confirmed to be starting in goal. With Lewandowski confirmed to be missing out, Southgate may not feel the need to switch from his newly successful 4-3-3 setup, with the bulk of the XI who started against Albania also featuring here. Luke Shaw displayed his qualities against Albania and should keep Ben Chilwell out of the team here, but James Ward-Prowse and Jesse Lingard are fighting for recalls. There was initial optimism over Lewandowski’s knee injury, but in a huge blow to the visitors’ chances of success, the striker has indeed damaged ligaments and will not be lining up at Wembley. Arkadiusz Milik and Krzysztof Piatek will therefore form a strike partnership as the skipper is forced to watch on from the sidelines, while Wojciech Szczesny is set for a taxing return to English soil as he attempts to prevent Kane from finding the back of the net. Kamil Piatkowski impressed on his debut for Poland, but he has since tested positive for coronavirus and will make way for Jan Bednarek here, while Brighton & Hove Albion’s Jakub Moder is also in contention to return to the first XI. Former West Bromwich Albion midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak has also contracted COVID-19 and will likely be replaced in the XI by Rafal Augustyniak.
