England vs Poland: live stream, start time, TV info and more


This might be one of the marquee match ups of the day. This is a UEFA World Cup qualifying match between England and Poland. England sits atop the table and would earn an automatic bid to the World Cup if they stay there. Unfortunately, they only have a one point lead over Ukraine.

That means they have to go for a win and the three points. They could advance with a loss or draw if Ukraine didn’t win, but you can’t count on that. Especially when they’re playing San Marino. England doesn’t want to go to the play-off.

“None of the players have mentioned the play-offs,” Steven Gerrard said, via ESPN FC. “We want to seize this opportunity. We want to win. The play-offs are a safety net but the lads want to get the job done and finish it off in style in front of our supporters.”
