England v Poland Preview, 2014 World Cup Qualification, Tuesday 15th October 2013

Roy Hodgson and his England side are just one game away from a guaranteed place over in the World Cup Finals in Brazil next summer and must secure all 3pts from this game on tuesday night against Poland or face having to compete in a play-off which could see them go up against either France, Denmark or Sweden.

However luckily for England, Poland are out of contention to even make the play-offs having been defeated at home 1-0 against the Ukraine last friday night and this will surely have seen all the fight and determination drain from the players and the last thing any of them will want to do is play in this game on tuesday night, so an early goal by the Three Lions could be enough to see the Poles begin to wave the white flags in surrender.

England v Poland Team News

England Team News:

Kyle Walker is unavailable having received a yellow card in the 4-1 thumping of Montenegro last friday night, so either Phil Jones or Chris Smalling will come in to provide cover. Man of the Match Andros Townsend should be rewarded having impressed on his debut with a place in the starting lineup and we should also see both Wayne Rooney and Daniel Sturridge lead the attack up front.

Poland Team News:

The visitors don’t have any fresh injury problems or suspensions for this game, so will probably name the same starting eleven that lost 1-0 against the Ukraine last friday night with Robert Lewandowski leading the attack up front.

England v Poland Head to Head Statistics

39 goals have been scored during the previous 18 matches which gives us with an average goals per game statistic of 2.16 which suggests we should see at least one or two goals scored during this game on Tuesday night.

England v Poland Recent Form (Last 5 Games – Left to Right)

Poland: D W D W L

England have a slight advantage on the recent form statistics having won 3 times during their previous 5 matches played. Poland have managed just 2 victories during their last 5.

England v Poland Match Betting Odds Market.

England are the clear odds on favourites with the online bookmakers to win this game at a best price of just 1/4 with Ladbrokes (£30 Free Bets for New Customers) currently available which looks way too short for me.

The Draw is not going to do England any favours in this game, but it does seem Poland will be attempting to cause a huge upset to give their 18,000 fans something to cheer about and this could result in both sides having to settle for a point a piece at a current best price of 11/2 with Betfred (£25 Free Bets for New Customers).

Poland will be very disappointed at having been eliminated from any chance of going to the world cup after losing at home 1-0 to Ukraine last friday and will certainly be out to prove a point on tuesday night and their current odds to win the game might just tempt a few people in at 4/1 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers).

England v Poland Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

A game England must win if they are to avoid being matched up against the likes of France, Sweden or Denmark in the play-offs and if they can manage to put in the kind of performance that they did in the second half against Montenegro, then I can’t see Poland having much chance of causing a shock.

Looking back at the previous results between the two nations we do see England have a huge advantage having won 10 of the previous 18 played and with Poland having only ever recorded 1 victory during those matches you can be sure that those statistics will be firmly in the Polish players minds on tuesday night.

An early goal should be enough to see England qualify for next summers World Cup Finals in Brazil as Group Winners as although Poland will firmly believe that can upset the apple cart by winning this game an early goal by R0y Hodgson’s side would see any hopes and belief that the Polish players did have quickly disappear and should then see England go on to win this game in comfortable fashion like they did on friday night.

The goal statistics suggest one or two goals to be scored here, I think there could actually be a couple more than that as England really have to go for this and try to kill off Poland as quickly as possible, so betting markets like Over 2.5 Goals, Both Teams to Score and Anytime Goal Scorers could all provide some extra value.
