Poland 1-1 England: As It Happened

World Cup qualifier—Warsaw, Poland.


Goals: Rooney (Eng), Glik (Poland)

England were lucky to walk off the pitch in Warsaw with a draw as a rejuvenated Poland team ran riot for 90 minutes.

The Three Lions continually gave away possession over a sloppy 90 minutes, while certain Polish attacking outlets could have wreaked havoc on another day.

Wayne Rooney had opened the scoring for Roy Hodgson's team just before the end of the first half, nodding in at the near post from a Steven Gerrard corner.

But Poland bit back and after sustained pressure at the hands of Lukasz Piszczek, Ludovic Obraniak and Robert Lewandowski, Kamil Glik equalised from a corner of their own.
