The Three Lions can all but guarantee a place at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar with victory in Warsaw tonight.

Gareth Southgate’s in-form side have so far shown no hangover from their heartbreaking Euro 2020 final defeat by Italy over recent days.

England beat Hungary 4-0 in a match that was marred by racist abuse aimed at Raheem Sterling and Jude Bellingham by a section of the home crowd in Budapest last week, before making sweeping changes for another 4-0 rout of minnows Andorra on their return to Wembley on Sunday.

A 100 per cent record has seen them comfortably occupy top spot in Group I, with a place at the winter tournament next year all but secured with four matches still to play if that run continues this evening.

But England are likely to face a stern test against Paulo Sousa’s second-placed Poland, who crucially have captain Robert Lewandowski fit and firing.

The Bayern Munich star missed the 2-1 defeat in London in March through injury, but is now firmly back on top form after scoring in big wins over Albania and San Marino, taking his overall tally for his country to 72 goals in 124 senior caps.

England team news

England’s significant strength in depth has been emphasised by Southgate being able to name completely different starting XIs against Hungary and Andorra, though it needed the spark from substitutes Harry Kane, Jack Grealish and Mason Mount to open the floodgates late on at Wembley on Sunday.

The Three Lions have no new injury worries to contend with tonight, with Aston Villa defender Tyrone Mings suspended and Jadon Sancho having returned to Manchester United for treatment on an unspecified knock on Saturday.

Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin also withdrew from the squad in advance of the trip to Budapest due to injury.

Southgate is expected to revert back to the same team that cruised past Hungary 4-0 on Thursday in a match marred by the racist abuse aimed at Raheem Sterling and Jude Bellingham by a section of the home crowd in the second half.

That would see England line up as follows:

(4-2-3-1) Pickford; Walker, Stones, Maguire, Shaw; Rice, Phillips; Sterling, Mount, Grealish; Kane
