Gareth Southgate highlights Poland’s quality despite Robert Lewandowski absence

England are looking for three wins out of three on the Road to Qatar

Robert Lewandowski’s absence for Poland will not lull Gareth Southgate into a false sense of security as England prepare for a step up in quality in a key World Cup qualifier.

After the 5-0 cakewalk against San Marino and Sunday’s comfortable 2-0 win in Albania, the Group I leaders have the chance to strengthen their grip on top spot and smooth the road to Qatar.

Poland are sure to prove the toughest test of March’s triple-header, but tonight’s opponents have had to deal with positive Covid-19 cases ahead of the trip to Wembley and travel to London without their star man.

Lewandowski will miss this match and the next four weeks with a strained knee ligament, but Southgate says the Bayern Munich sharpshooter’s absence does not make England’s final competitive match before the Euros any easier.
