England and Poland will square off on Tuesday in one of the most anticipated matches of the current round of World Cup qualifying fixtures.
One player making headlines right now for the Three Lions is Wayne Rooney, who has been in fine form during international play and could become the next permanent captain of England.
The Manchester United forward captained England in its match versus San Marino on Friday, and is probably the best choice to lead the squad into the future with veteran midfielders Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard nearing the end of their careers.
Will Rooney score vs. Poland?
Speaking of Gerrard, the current England and Liverpool captain will return to the squad after a one-match ban was served, and he will be a key part of the Three Lions attack versus Poland.
Gerrard needs to give quality service to forwards such as Rooney, Danny Welbeck, Andy Carroll and Jermaine Defoe if England is to take an early lead and set the tone of the match.
The possible addition of veteran left-back Ashley Cole would also be a tremendous boost to England, which is at its best when the Chelsea man is on the pitch.
Getting an early lead is crucial for England since it is away from home and will be facing an energized crowd in Warsaw.
England was fortunate to be drawn in a somewhat easy World Cup qualifying group, so it cannot be dropping points against inferior squads. To bolster their confidence and chances of qualifying as soon as possible, the Three Lions must start Tuesday's match with a ton of energy, and looking to open the scoring.
Since its next three World Cup qualifiers are away from Wembley (including this match vs. Poland), England has a great opportunity over the next few months to establish itself as a squad that can win tough games away from home.
