GOOOOAAAAALLLLLL!!!! Steven Gerrard!!!!— The FA (@FA) October 15, 2013
88' GOAL ENGLAND!!! Steven Gerrard has put England into the World Cup finals! The captain skipped between two Poland defenders, was pulled to ground but as he fell managed to stab the ball past Szczesny and into the back of the net!
87' Milner replaces Townsend for England. That's England's final substitution. Once again Townsend was just superb for the Three Lions.
86' Jagielka tries to spring Townsend but there's just a bit too much weight on his cross.
82' Wilshere replaces Sturridge for England.
Lampard offers glaring contrast to Carrick when clumsily getting booked and later hoofing ball forward.— Tom Adams (@tomEurosport) October 15, 2013
78' Sturridge! The Liverpool forward cuts in and unleashes a right-footer that requires both of Szczesny's hands as the Poland 'keeper turns the ball over the bar. Wilshere warming up.
77' Jedrzejczyk goes into the book for a tug on Townsend.
76' Zielinksi has replaced Mierzejewski for Poland. That's their final change.
75' Townsend earns another corner for England. Rooney delivers but it flies over everyone.
Roy's got a lot of stuff very right in the last few days. He better hope Lampard for Carrick comes off.— Chris Cooper (@chrislovescass) October 15, 2013
Carrick's night ends with 73 touches of the ball and a passing rate of 94%. Wouldn't have taken him off, myself, but that's why they pay Hodgson the big money.
71' Lampard replaces Carrick for England.
Really impressed with Danny Welbeck's work rate tonight. Covering some serious yardage on the left flank and supporting Baines well.— Simon Head (@simonhead) October 15, 2013
This is really in the balance. Hodgson's first change will be a massive one.
67' Rooney! From nothing the Man United ace tests Szczesny, but the Arsenal 'keeper dives to his left and makes the save.
Poland showing a lot more initiative since the restart. England have that Rooney goal, but you feel they'll need another to book their automatic berth in the World Cup finals.
65' Peszko replaces Sobota for Poland. They've got one change left.
