England vs Poland: 5 Reasons Three Lions Can Look Forward To Must-Win Game
5. Polands Shaky Defence
Though the away side have Artur Boruc between the posts, Polands back four does not possess a particularly sterling record. They have recorded just two clean sheets in the group so far, against Moldova and whipping boys San Marino. A draw away against Moldova (1-1) gives the mark of an average side who were momentarily drawing against the latter before usual service resumed in a thumping 5-1 victory. Polands defensive woes will be exploited even further with the loss of their best defenders Lukasz Piszczek and Lukasz Szukala, who picked up a second booking in the 1-0 reverse at Ukraine on Friday. The Borussia Dortmund right-back is only due to return to action at the turn of 2014 and leaves a gaping hole at the back. Kamil Glik will be leading the back line, though he is more known for his threat to England from set pieces than preventing goals at his end. A much-talked about rearguard from 40 years ago has been brought up in the press recently, though England should have far less worries about this Polish setup.
